As Abraham Lincoln said, A house divided cannot stand. The country is divided. Just like during the civil war, families are divided. The one thing that is different about this country is that we don’t take to the streets. Governments transition peacefully. My hope and prayers are for this country to come together to solve the significant problems that it faces.
I’m reminded of a cartoon that I saw once. You see there were 4 guys in a boat. The boat was sinking. Two guys on one end were bailing water. The two guys on the other end had their feet propped up and the caption read, “I’m sure glad that the leak is not in our side of the boat”. When you’re in the same boat, it doesn’t matter which side of the boat has a leak in it. You get busy bailing water or patching the boat or putting your life jacket on.
My hope is that everyone will find something to do to make this country great again.
As Mother Theresa said, “If everybody cleaned their doorstep, the whole world would be clean”.
I must say that it’s not easy to encourage others to come together. In fact, expect that some from your team will accuse you of switching sides. Refuse to drink from the cup of bitterness and hatred. It is impossible to accomplish justice through injustice.
As Einstein said, “The significant problems that we face, cannot be solved at the same level of thinking that we were at when we created them”.
Are you willing to help me to heal the wounds and encourage the country to break through the red states and the blue states. We are the United States.
