——————————————————————————————————————————–

Despite the deep divides, we are all in this together.  Most Americans probably do want some similar things, such as jobs, improved economy, increased minimum wage, decreased political corruption, safety, access to affordable health care, access to affordable and quality education, and to be heard by their government.  But I feel we also have to fight bigotry, we have to find a way to help educate people, we shouldn’t villainize each other, but neither can we let any bigotry be tolerated.  This election seems to be a wake up call that perhaps we are in a kind of civil war.  What do we do now?  but, either way, for good and bad, we are in this together.  (unless, I don’t know, Canada…)
