On Election Day

CC OBEY

 

Right now, we have a chance to take a view that is so much larger than Obama or Romney, Us or Them, My Way or The Highway. Without budging an inch in what we believe and whom we support, we could take a moment, just a millisecond, to imagine that the “other” side feels as much passion, despair, longing, and fear about the election as we do. We could care about each other, American to American. As winners, we could seek ways to include the losers as we go forward rather than further ostracize them. As losers, we could redouble our efforts to fight for what we believe in from a sense of love for this country rather than hatred for the victors.

-Susan Piver

This is a quote from one my favorite teachers.  I have been thinking about the animosity building between Romney and Obama supporters.  It is good to remember that we are not only one country; but, we are all humans trying to do our best.
