Trurh matters, for without it we have nothing.

The America I know and love is good, compassionate, tolerant, and fair. And that is one vision.

My friends are whites and blacks. I am not color blind. They're mostly uppermiddle class. They are wealthy in material and in spirit. They embody the Midwestern values: down to earth and ready to lend a hand. They don't complain about paying taxes. They don't complain about Obamacare, though they don't benefit much from it. They don't judge others. They don't single people out based on trifles. They're not selfish. They're Atheists and Christians and Unitarians and straight and gay. The men I know respect women (a prerequisite to hang out with me). But what binds them all is their belief in the principal of human solidarity and the inherent dignity of everyone and the American values. I tip my hat. And am lucky to be in their company. The political waters are choppy and turbulent, but I still believe we are that shining city on a hill. Don't ever lose hope, and don't dim the lights of our beloved village. America.

We must unite as ONE human race. Our DNA is 99.9% the same. We must evolve to save ourselves on this tiny blue dot. We are so alone in this enormous universe. I want to think that there are more of us who want this than don't. We must not allow those powerful political and religious forces to tear us apart.

I try to stay apolitical on here. But ... It's a grave error, rather bigotry itself, to label every person who voted for Trump a racist, a hater, or a bigot. This is the same country that voted twice for Obama. Democracy is about political dialogue and meaningful discourse. But when that discourse makes some people feel unsafe, then I believe all fair-minded people should reach out to their fellow humans.
