I recently forwarded a political e-mail which caused a maelstrom from people I love and care deeply about. I couldn't help but think, if this campaign has polarized my family so completely, what is it doing to our nation? We're supposed to be "one nation, under God." Yes, I said it, "under God." I'm an American citizen and the First Amendment applies. We are a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles. You don't have to believe in God to enjoy the freedoms these principles assure, and that many have fought and died for, but you ought to at least respect the rights of those who do.
"Indivisible." That's the next word in our Pledge of Allegiance. That's what we were after 9/11. That's the common goal of burning patriotism and love of God and country. "America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great." -Alexis de Tocqueville
Whatever the outcome of this campaign, it is my sincere hope and prayer that America will reunite in solidarity and love for all that is good and right.
