-Help when we need it
We all want the same things. The difference is how we feel we should go about getting it.
Just acknowledge what we have in common.
-We live in the United States of America
-We live in a republic of states
-We grew up with happiness, heartache and dreams
-We have friends and we have confrontations
-We have idols that win our hearts and others who let us down
-We all know of the American Dream and strive for our own interpretation of it in our own way
-We all see the light of the same sun and stand on the same magnificent Earth
-We all marvel at the same Milkyway in the night sky
A wise man once said,
“There is not a liberal America and a conservative America — there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and Latino America and Asian America — there’s the United States of America.
The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into… Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too: We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don’t like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States, and, yes, we’ve got some gay friends in the Red States. There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and there are patriots who supported the war…
…It’s the hope of slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom songs. The hope of immigrants setting out for distant shores. The hope of a young naval lieutenant bravely patrolling the Mekong Delta. The hope of a mill worker’s son who dares to defy the odds. The hope of a skinny kid with a funny name who believes that America has a place for him too. Hope! Hope in the face of difficulty! Hope in the face of uncertainty! The audacity of hope! In the end, that is God’s greatest gift to us, the bedrock of this nation. A belief in things not seen. A belief that there are better days ahead.”
-In the big picture our differences and problems are very small.
- Because ultimately what makes us alike… will fill a universe!
