A reminder to #LOVE each other, today. Your fellow citizen is not your enemy. They are not someone to mock or to hate or to send away. They are your partners in the contract that we, as citizens, have all entered into, which is to share this country and all of the privileges and responsibilities that come with it. One of those responsibility is to respect each other and all of the myriad ways in which we differ. We can do this. We can lead in LOVE even when our leaders fail in that responsibility. WE can be the model of that behavior and build a “beloved community”. We can do that. Take a moment, today, and look at the person next to you on the bus, on the train or in line at the grocery store and try and extend yourself to them, even if quietly, to yourself, in your mind and understand that, they too, have a story, a family and a dream. See them through that lens, today, and see if you can LOVE them and your country, in the process, just a little more. I LOVE YOU!
