The saddest thing is, after over 200 years of living together with respect and tolerance for each others’ beliefs and rights, with a few bumps along the way, we now appear to be living in a society of intolerance and disrespect for each others’ rights and beliefs.
It seems in today’s world if you say, do or display a sign or symbol someone doesn’t agree with, you may find yourself in court or fired from your job. Your only crime appears to be not to believe as they do. You appear to have offended them, but not really harmed them, except in their perception of it.
Another sad thing is what appears to be an assault on the core values and principles upon which this country was founded. The biggest perpetrator of this assault appears to be our own government.
In the country today, it appears the minority (in numbers) and not the majority (in numbers) rule.
It does not appear our “leaders” are taking the country in the right direction. We may not be perfect, but no country is. I love my country, but am confused and uncertain as to what type of country we are going to be.
Could these be part of the problems in our country today?
