How Americans can come together no matter who is President

(EDITORIAL) I’d like to remind my readers of something said by Eleanor Roosevelt, “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

Finding peace

I’m writing this on the day following the election. Personally, I’m glad it’s over. While I’d like a smooth transition to the new regime, I’m doubtful. What I do know is that life in the United States will continue. In four years we’ll go through this madness again.

In the meantime, I’d like to remind my readers of something said by Eleanor Roosevelt, “Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

We are in this together

Getting angry over who won and who lost will not help our country. Being joyful that your candidate won and the enemy lost will not endear you to others. Right now, we need to come together and figure out how we can protect the rights of everyone, even those with whom we disagree. “Great minds discuss ideas…”

I firmly believe that partisan politics protects our country. We need people who put the interests of businesses first, but we also need representatives who think about social needs.

It’s when we balance the needs of everyone that our country succeeds.

This is a scary time for some of us. People are wondering whether they’ll have healthcare next year. Will taxes go up? Come down? Can our economy withstand the uncertainty?

Make a difference

I rarely allow myself to enter the political fray. Today, more than ever before, I’m very concerned about our government. Although I cannot change anything at the federal or state levels on my own, I can make a difference in my community. Instead of talking about people and events, I intend to follow Mrs. Roosevelt’s words and discuss ideas on what I can do to transform my little corner of the world. I’m not going to get mad at friends who disagree with me about our government.

Alienating my neighbor does not solve a problem, only widens the gap.

You have a voice in how our leaders govern. We can’t only be active during election time. We have to be active all year long and provide our representatives with our opinions. Know your state and federal leaders. Communicate with them. Discuss your ideas with others. Let’s move forward with the new government and work together for the best.
