“Over 60 Flagler Democrats gathered at the Palm Coast Community Center on Friday, October 5 to meet the wife of Senator Bill Nelson, Grace Nelson.
Mrs. Nelson and her daughter, Nan, made a surprise visit to our Community and delighted us with stories of their adventures through the years with Senator Nelson as he served his country as an Astronaut and public servant over these many years. Mrs. Nelson expressed her concern over the loss of civility amount family, friends, and neighbors over the last two years. It is her hope that we will reach out and try to repair these broken relationships wherever possible.
To that end she presented our local Democratic Party with a copy of a Norman Rockwell drawing which shows people of diverse national backgrounds, ethnicity, ages, and beliefs together as one family. The caption below the picture says “Do Unto Others As You would Have Them Do Unto You.” The framed picture is at the local democratic office for all to enjoy.
Mrs. Nelson spent over two hours with us and her wisdom and kindness were a refreshing break from the brutal politics of the day.
