Points to Ponder:
The US Presidential Election is over but from looking at some of the reaction from people on both sides it seems the fight still continues. In our electoral process there will always be one side that is happy and another that is not. How we handle victory or defeat will decide how the next four years will shape our future. We must work together on the things we agree, and agree to disagree on the things that we don’t, but in spite of these differences we must try to find a common ground.
“Some people say, ‘Make America Great Again’. I say America was great all along. Some of us just forgot why. It’s great because your grandfather and my grandfather and just about everybody’s damn grandfather or great-grandfather crammed themselves, snuck, bought their way, or was dragged onto a boat and one way or another allowed themselves eventually to dream. You can. There’s still room. And in some places in America, apparently, you’re still welcome. Welcome, stranger. This land is your land.” --Anthony Bourdain in Parts Unknown (Houston)
Reflection: The history of some of the greatest civilizations show that they thrived or declined in how they handled internal differences.
