Something That Is Absolutely Critical To Remember Over The Next Several Months
A victory is not a victory if you betray your core values in the process of achieving that victory. This is not the article that I was expecting to write today, but this is one of those times when I have been taken in a direction that I did not anticipate. Today, everyone can see that America is very deeply divided. Anger, frustration and hatred are rising all around us, and we are rapidly approaching the election in November. As November approaches, I believe that things are going to get very heated. And when an election gets heated, it can be very tempting to hate the people on the other side. But we must not give in to that temptation, because Americans are not supposed to be hate-filled people. In the end, our lives will be defined by how much we love, and that includes how much we love those that are our enemies. I know that such talk is very rare in America today, and that is why articles like this are so desperately needed.
Even if your party wins the election in November, if you choose to hate the people on the other side you still lose.
Every single member of your party could win every single vote in November, but if your heart is filled with hate that would not be a win for you personally.
I see so much hatred on the Internet these days. Of course the Internet has always been filled with hate, but election season seems to bring it to a crescendo. Many of the things that are being said about others are too horrible for me to repeat, but you know exactly what I am talking about. One of the main reasons why a lot of good people don’t want to get into politics is because of all the nastiness that takes place, and we are truly setting a horrible example for the rest of the globe.
We desperately need to be able to learn how to disagree with others without hating them.
There is a world of difference between having a fundamental difference of opinion on an issue and hating someone else because of what they believe.
