Sharon Jimenez In 2008 Anna Jimenez now Anna Jimenez Lyle was supporting me in the most challenging job in my life supporting the democratic candidate for president US Congressman Dennis Kucinich; waging war with the media censorship that was driven by war profiting, for profit health care leaving millions without a doctor when they were sick, small farmers being run out of business, fighting to stay in national debates against heavyweights Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama heavily funded against us. We stood up for marriage equality when they wouldn't and for strength through peace when they wouldn't, and we laid the foundation for Bernie Sanders campaign in 2016. Without Anna I can't imagine how I would have handled the intense stress of 2004 and 2008's presidential campaigns. She welcomed strangers to our door with bags of vegan groceries and was always there with a warm smile and loving hug. Bob and I are proud of the beautiful music you are making and the love that God brought to your lives. We aren't worried about Donald Trump's election because we've already experienced the darkness of loss when in 2008 our peace leadership lost out to the war driven direction of the democratic and republican parties. We know you and Anna will survive Hilary's loss to Trump and we hope the pendulum swings back to peace through some remarkable miracle because we know miracles are real. After all you met Anna! You became our son. We love you and we know God brought you to our family. Every night your nieces and nephew listen to your music. Six year old Lily has most of your songs memorized. Good love lingers on great podcast. Favorite track: Good Love Lingers On.

Carol@c_picturesofyou Hi Tyler, I needed a few days of reflection before I listened to episode 11. First I should tell you that I'm not an American. I'm listening to you in Birmingham, England, yes the original Birmingham - a world away from Alabama; that being said the wild west gunslinger Wyatt Earp's family came from down the road in the neighbouring town. That's the end of the similarities. I feel kind of impertinent for even commenting about the US election except for the fact that I have family that works for one of the famous American tech companies. I can tell you that even in Brexit -UK the US election result shocked me to the core; and I wasn't the only one. My friends in Germany , Sweden , Italy , Ireland and here in England are struggling to make sense of what from over here looks like a coup d'etat except without the bullets.
America doesn't look familiar to me anymore. It sounds as if your country doesn't feel familiar to you either. Thank you for this episode. I took comfort from hearing from you at this most difficult of times. What lies ahead I honestly don't know but please hold this thought from one of the greatest philosophers:
" You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think" - Winnie The Pooh.
God Bless The United States Of America. Favorite track: Love Story (Four Verses On The Divine Unity Of All Things).
