Today we celebrate the 242nd birthday of the United States.
If we want to be around another 200 years, we better find a way to get along.
What ever happened to compromise and middle ground?
Why is everything black or white, with no gray?
Why can’t we put ourselves in the other person’s shoes?
Where is the tolerance? Why, if someone disagrees with us, we deem them ignorant?
Why has extremism taken over?
