We have a great theme this week: UNITY chosen by Ronovan.
This has been and continues to be a tough election year here in the USA. I don’t remember ever seeing such animosity between americans due to politics. This country is called the ‘United States of America’ and right now there seems to be no unity amongst the people of this country. America is a country made up of a diverse group of people that form a complex whole. We can be united without necessarily agreeing on everything. We can be united without being cookie cutter copies of each other. We can be individuals with different opinions, beliefs and appearances. As long as we respect one another and show empathy, understanding and consideration toward each other we can be united. A country united is a strong country. I feel that the world is laughing at us right now because of our petty squabbles with one another. They’ve figured it out and are probably wondering why we’re stuck on stupid.
If I offended anyone by speaking my mind, it wasn’t my intention.

“I think family is key, and if you have love for family, then you have love for others – and you have unity as a people.”
“I think my best skill in this whole deal is as a conduit to try to bring people together, because I think it’s in our unity that we’ll have the greatest strength.”
“We all dream dreams of unity, of purity; we all dream that there’s an authoritative voice out there that will explain things, including ourselves. “
