Coming Together

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou was an angel among us for too short a time. Her wisdom touched so many and we could use a dose of her heart felt wisdom post-election. Voting is a privilege granted to each voter giving them a voice. A means of expressing their feelings and views. We are blessed beyond imagining because we have the right to vote in this country.

What isn’t written, but implied is we need to agree to disagree respectfully. I’ve voted in sixteen elections. My candidates have won and lost. No matter what I think of the person elected, I respect the office, and the person elected to it. No hateful rhetoric or judgement of fellow citizens if my candidate doesn’t win.

We need to come together and put our differences aside. It is easy to find fault and harder to find solutions. We can rise together or fall short. It’s up to us.
