I think it may be time for Americans to grow up. Saying negative things about anyone hurts both the giver an the receiver of the negativity. This election season has wounded us all deeply and it is time for us to actively bring about healing. My candidate didn’t win but that is no reason to denigrate those whose choice is in the White House. The fear mongering has to stop. I attended The Women’s March and the experience was nothing but positive for me. It did make me feel hopeful that our president tweeted about the march.
“Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don’t always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views.”
This was not widely reported. It seems positive things just aren’t news. Let’s change that. Because someone’s opinion is not mine, gives me no right to belittle or to denigrate them. My grandmother used to say, if you can’t say something good don’t say anything at all. That is how grown ups behave. The best way to make this country great is to work together to make it so.
