There is no us and them.

I know that it feels like we’re just yelling across a chasm at each other.

People are divided by politics, religion, race, ideology, football teams.

I’m right and everyone who disagrees with me must be wrong.

And an idiot.

And an enemy.

And one of them.

But there is no them, only us.

We are sharing this planet together.

We have more in common than we may think.

Its great that we’re different.

I’m glad that we’ve got different candidates to vote for, different ideas to ponder, different backgrounds that influence us in different ways.

We don’t have to agree with each other to love one another.

A them and us mentality won’t solve the world’s problems.

But us together?  Wow, we can do anything!
