I have, of course, made my own decision regarding where our Country should be headed from here.  But I can hardly reconcile with the division of our country.  Conservative against Liberal, neighbor against neighbor, fear and hope - - all being at odds with one another.  The reality sunk in for me as I was speaking with a friend who shared her deepest fear of losing fundamental, religious freedoms and the potential of civil clashes in our local communities.  Feeling powerless to Change the current temperature of our country, and seeing that so many other countries around the world are suffering this same divide, I write:

If Country First our motto be
   Then let it now begin with me
May I meet my fellow man
   On equal ground and solemnly
That we may we seek our greatest prize
   And find it in our children’s eyes
Let understanding here abound
   Treading o’er this sacred ground
Each truth and honor’s value hold
   May each of us be strong and bold
Our mission be our greatest gifts
   And dedicated heartfelt wish
To Change what we cannot abide
   Be strength and goodness on our side
May kindness be our greatest tool - - in
   Gentle whispers ‘cross our moors
   May freedom ring from shore to shore
And with our freedoms may we show
   That we Unite, so all will know
The goodness of our hearts and land
   The solidarity of man
In one voice shout down poverty
   And raising up equality
To take from none their pride or wealth
   But guarantee each man his health
Long live our nation, bright and great
   Send forth our soldiers to create
A footprint both in space and time
   With elements of the Divine
Our seed upon ripe ground must fall
   Our seed of love
                And Love is all

Has anyone else considered what each of us can do to Heal our Nation's divide?
Is there a way to come through this as Americans in a strong and united manner?

Being forced to vote is a great way to bring people together during an election in Australia Cheesy Just kidding...Wink
