Fellow blogger and marathoner, Jame Harris commented on my blog the other day about how this country feels very divided, not since Trump but for many years now. And I agree with his assessment.
We the people of the United States enjoy, among other things, a diversity that few other country can match. It is our cultural value and our so called “American spirit.” Something that unites us. So I started thinking why then are we so divided?
The reasons could be as varied as number of people you ask – race, sexual preference, religion, etc. But that is the diversity value which supposed to make us strong. Perhaps I am asking the wrong question?
In my reflection, I came across a post, titled “Love has no labels“, from two years ago that I believe offers a solution.
As I wrote two years ago, our biases are scripted by external environment. Maybe we need to focus more on our similarities than our differences. Love has no labels. Stripping away the labels we are the same.
If you have a different assessment please share.
