It won't be about what laws to write, where bombs will drop or who will get elected. It will instead be about something we have known how to do our whole lives.
We need to ask the right questions of one another.
And we need to listen.
Instead of asking whether one believes in God,
we should ask whether our own actions are godly.
Instead of asking whether one is pro-choice or pro-life,
we should ask what we can do to make sure every child is wanted.
Instead of asking "Why Me?"
we should ask "What Can I Do to Help This Situation?"
Instead of demanding the truth from others,
we should tell it ourselves.
Instead of pushing to make more money,
we should ask what we can to do be more valuable to those around us.
Instead of condemning illegal immigration,
we should watch whom we hire.
Instead of blaming "the terrorists"
we should identify the term objectively.
Instead of reading history literally,
we should talk back to it until we are satisfied of its facts.
We can choose a future where we continue to divide ourselves by labels or one where we confront problems and work together to solve them. The economy will be bad for quite some time and political matters won't be much better so divisions will be costly.
