But rather than bringing over cookies, home-made meals or gift baskets, a number Pence's neighbors - including the ones who live directly across the street from him - are instead bringing him a message:
As everyone knows, before Mike Pence became Donald Trump's running mate his claim to fame was that he was among the most bigoted anti-LGBTQ governors in the country:
He is rabidly against same-sex marriage.
He wanted to send federal funds allocated for treatment of HIV and AIDS patients to gay-conversion therapy centers instead.
He signed his "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" which made discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community legal in Indiana until he was forced by public outrage and the threat of economic sanctions to deep six the part of the law that allowed anti-LGBTQ discrimination.
And now this man is going to be Vice President and I, like millions of other mothers of gay and transgender children, have to worry about the welfare of my child.
But reading about Mike Pence's neighbors brought tears to my eyes. It lifted my heart with the hope that even if our country's civil rights laws will soon be at the mercy of bigots, racists, white supremists and xenophobes,
To the good people in Mike Pence's neighborhood, I thank you from my heart.
