Can we talk? Seriously. Can we just come together for a discussion? There’s been some conflict going on lately. Some serious name-calling. Finger-pointing. Some not-so-loving of thy neighbors. Some getting-our-signals-crossed dialogue.
Now, I know we all have different:
- belief systems
- economic status
- personality dynamics
And all these go into making each one of us unique.
But does that mean we shouldn’t respect each other?
Is a firefly any less beautiful than a peacock because of its size? Is a fish any less magnificent than a bear?
We can disagree with someone’s actions, but still respect them as a person. But you can’t force someone to respect you back.
Can we each take a breath, take a corner, take a seat, take whatever we need to take in order to stop this collision course we’re on with hatred and animosity? Can we consider that maybe, just maybe, not only are others not perfect, but we’re not either?
Maybe there’s some middle ground we can reach.
With a handshake and a hug,
And Frankly, My Dear . . . That’s all she wrote!
