Start Coming Together and Practice Diplomacy.
We wonder how our country can be so fucked as we ourselves toss negativity at each other.
We write things like if you watch THIS news channel you’re a complete dumb ass, trying to put others down and to look educated.
The Republicans are xxxx and the Democrats are xxxx!
We’re not the problem, it’s them.
We post and respond with words we’d never say to each other face to face.
We blame this thing or another without looking in the mirror and realizing we are also spreading more division.
Are you guilty of this nonsense ? If so, stop. STOP for gods sake.
Diplomacy is the art and science of maintaining peaceful relationships between nations, groups, or individuals.
Read it again. It includes – Groups. Individuals.
Have we forgotten about diplomacy within our own country? Within our own community? With each other?
When was the last time you told your ego to shut the hell up, breathe, and just listen to someone who had different views then you? When did you even try to understand where others were coming from and what experiences did they have that you didn’t?
I already know someone will say yes yes yes this is all true in the comments, BUT
… THERE’S ALWAYS A BUT
What can you do to get people to realize we have more in common then what the news and social media sites pushes down our throat trying to divide us, causing more fear, and making more money on US as the product?
When was the last time you asked a political candidate how they would work with all parties and help unite our country instead of how can we push our shit/agenda through just to have it undone when the other party wins? When will this again become honorable to work together?
“IT” won’t get better until you get better at it.
