Election Reflections

This was shared on Facebook by a friend of mine – the message is powerful on many levels.

Enjoy . . . Debs

My hope is that no matter who wins it can be the beginning of change. Maybe change in politics, but hopefully change in each of us. Because real change starts with us as individuals, us as Americans, us as Human beings. We need to be better than the politicians we have to choose from. The hatefulness I have read and heard during this election is so disheartening. Do we need to be hateful towards those we disagree with? Do we need to be hurtful to those that are different from us? I don’t care what your political views are, what you look like, where you come from. I care what kind of person you are, how you treat people. If I see you fall down, I’m not gong to ask who you voted for before I offer to help you up. We don’t have to agree to respect each other, we don’t have to like each other to love one another, we can be different and still be kind.

Remember, your right to speak your mind, share your opinion and vote for who you choose is the same right of your neighbor. It’s OK to agree to disagree and sill work together for the common good. If your candidate wins, congratulations. If your candidate looses, I hope you can express your disappointment in a respectful way and move on in a productive manner and no matter the outcome, I hope we can all come together as Americans and be better as humans, after all united we stand, divided we fall.

  1. My country was in shock, too, that Trump won. But in all honesty… I don’t think Hillary was such a great candidate, either. All we can do now is wait. As we’ve seen happen already, predictions don’t always come true. Who knows, let’s hope Trump does a better job than expected.
    This post was great, because it encourages respectfulness. And that’s something I think too many people undervalue nowadays.
