Today I pray specifically for the safety of all our leaders and law enforcement. Regardless of our individual opinions, violence and hatred are not the answers (thank you, Dr. King). My hope is as we each hold steadfast to our passionate beliefs, that the goal of a united and successful country will be in the forefront of our thoughts, and that compromise results from considerate, constructive conversations. Let us all choose our words and actions carefully so as to not be a disparaging force when we want to be heard. Michelle Obama’s spot-on admonition to “go high when they go low” is a reciprocal obligation. Let’s be kind to those who disagree; but let us each have the freedom and right to disagree. And may we serve as positive role models to our children and the world, that when we disagree, we still maintain respect for the offices our leaders hold. God bless America, especially today. Simply put; ’nuff said…J
