With events transpiring today in Virginia, I want to take a moment just to state what I find is a truth in society: People are people are people. No race is supreme to others, no gender tops the other, no sexuality makes someone better than another and no one’s beliefs make them holier than thou (though all too many times in this country and around the world, religious beliefs are the basis for division and acts of hate).
One of the great characteristics of America history is how it was looked upon by immigrants as the land of opportunity. That was not aimed at one specific type of immigrant, nor a specific country of origin. So many of America’s great accomplishments were achieved through the eclectic social masses of this nation. You can’t look past that, nor can you defend one-over-all within the borders of this society – to do so proves your absence from it.
Standing together is what has made this country great. The press for division which has embodied 2017’s politics is damning it.
