A search for true leaders in a nation divided
Without compromise, politics fails to do its No. 1 duty and that is doing what is in the best interest of the people. There appears to be division so great and excessive that the grief of the average man is unheard. This grief has turned into anger and sorrow that have caused us to enter a place where we are willing to elect people who may not be the best to lead our country into the future.
To my surprise and to great concern, the excessiveness of our division has yet to give us pause for contemplation on what is truly going on amongst us. There are no joys for which we can sympathize together because we have allowed ourselves to become so angry, so egotistical that we have forgotten that egoism is not what propelled America to being such a great nation. No person nor group can be so absorbed of their own self-interest that they forget the interest of others. Nor should any group, regardless of size, marginalize other groups merely because they look different or choose different lifestyles. These things should be foreign to America and like any sickness, we must rid ourselves of this virus.
