We need to pull together

Posted

I’d like to know where we’re headed in this country.

People kneel or turn away from the flag during the national anthem.

Some people are wanting to defund the police departments, yet crime is on the rise.

Many, far too many, people won’t take the COVID vaccines, yet that is the only way to curb this terrible pandemic.

Politicians cannot get past the color of their party when it comes to govern.

Who pays that price?

You and me, that’s who.

We’ve had disagreements in the past.

Sometimes volatile.

The Civil War comes to mind.

But these days it seems like very few folks are getting along, especially if they are Blue or Red and working in Washington D.C.

I’ve even had friends of mine tell me they are depressed and they think it stems from the way many politicians conduct themselves.

In a country of free speech you are welcome to speak your mind as long as you agree with the thinking of your neighbor.

Whatever happened to let us agree to disagree?

In an era of the threat of China or Russia, the internet hacking and the pandemic, maybe the greatest threat to our great nation is us.

Despite the efforts of many, racial tensions in the country remain as they were back in the 1960s.

Sad fact but true.

Why can’t we all just get along?

For some strange reason our country can make any issue into a political issue.

How is that possible?

It’s possible because we make it that way.

In days gone by we had problems but they were our problems.

Nowadays they are problems for everyone else.

Not my fault.

No one seems to want to take the blame for anything yet many things are in a mess.

That’s someone’s fault.

Maybe all our faults.

We need to start mending fences instead of always arguing over issues and start peddling in the right direction.

All for one and one for all no matter your political affiliation.
