As my husband [and Yoda] says, ‘Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering’ and so I don’t want to be on that dark side. I want to search for the light. I feel sad, deeply sad, about this rhetoric and deeply disappointed. There was a political correctness within our society but now people just say anything. I believe in civility, inclusion and diversity. I believe that everybody can contribute. I don’t believe in labelling and stereotypes. These things are the antithesis of what I believe in and go against everything I love in America. And I do love America.
