Our country is built on being whatever you want to be if it doesn’t threaten anyone else. Maybe it’s social media or biased television news or exhaustion, but we’re screaming and not listening to each. We only hang out with people who scream the same things. Or we just silently disappear. Sins of omission or hatred are equal. We must know ourselves to know others. Then we must acknowledge that not everyone thinks the same way. There are few clear right/wrong positions. We can’t search for one right answer that everyone agrees to at the exclusion of acting. More children and adults will be shot. Find out what others stand for, seek to understand each other’s views, then agree to disagree without energy depleting negative emotions that just drive mistaken assumptions.
