As Americans, we must remember that united we stand, divided we fall
I am convinced that most people want similar things out of life. Whether you’re black, white, Latino, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, atheist, straight, gay, bisexual, or transgender — we all basically want the same things. We all want to be happy. We all want the opportunity to chase our dreams. We all want the best for our kids, loved ones, and communities.
Yet, this has somehow escaped us as the primary focus of politics, which is to foster an environment that allows people to be their best selves. We won’t always agree — we never have — but that shouldn’t hinder our ability to make progress for the greater good of society. We cannot continue to trivialize the problems of our current political climate as merely a moment in time. At what point do we all come together and say enough is enough, we owe each other so much more?
