“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” – Thomas Jefferson
Remember when a difference in political opinion was just that, a difference in opinion. We have a arrived at this place where it seems everyone has drawn a line in the sand and the narrative is: “Either with us or against us.” Don’t we all want basically the same things? Opportunities to work, raise our families, be happy? Just because we have different ideas about the best way to attain these, doesn’t mean we need to demonize the other side. Let’s take a second to realize that we are not as far apart as the news media would have us believe. Lets look for common ground and build on that instead of taking every opportunity to tear down others beliefs.
