Quote Of The Week

These days we know about PTSD, we know about childhood traumas like that. You know, he probably, in this day and age, he would have received years of therapy... I think I understand where he comes from. I do not agree [with] his actions. I do not agree with his ideology. But I do understand." -- Nina Bunjevac
