If we don’t stop this divisiveness, it’s going to tear our country apart.
We can’t count on our representatives – they’re too busy profiting off of fear politics to help.
We can’t count on the media and talk shows. They are also too busy profiting from it, ramping it up as fast as they can.
It’s up to us, but it isn’t complicated.

We just have to decide what we want more: being “in the right” or healing the country. A whole lot of folks aren’t in a place where they can do much healing-wise. But the rest of us can do a lot, if once each day we each reach out and really try and connect with someone who isn’t like us – a different color, religion, sexual orientation or from a different country or culture.
Once each day, we each should make an effort to tell someone different that we aren’t, really. That we’re the same. That we can care about each other, and we can do it with just a word, a smile, a kind gesture, a bit of help.
Think about what we could accomplish with just a little bit of effort, once each day.
