Start praying now for the innocent.
Admittedly, I’m a Puddleglum. I also have little sympathy for the warring tribes who will hit the streets soon on both sides. Despite posturing and feining to the contrary, both sides are egging on the conflict and blaming their adversaries. The media is of no help. Both sides have assembled columns of lawyers to push the coming election fight into the courts, and lunatic finge groups will take advantage to foment chaos in the streets for their own purposes.
No one is seriously reaching across the chasm in peace. Personally, I am praying for the innocent to escape and for horribly freezing weather. Only weather may cool their jets. Otherwise, many innocents will become collateral damage in the rash force and fury of what’s coming next.
