A friend of mine on the Left recently posted an amazing meme on Facebook (see above). He read the message from his point of view and I read it from mine. It’s one of the most profound statements I have ever seen on Facebook. I don’t know how it slipped past the FB Censors. It reads as follows:
America is not divided by race, color, gender, or sexual orientation. America is divided into wise people and fools. And fools divide themselves by race, color, gender, or sexual orientation.
Thank you, Jesus! Without thinking, I replied to him, “Watch it! That’s a pretty Conservative statement!” Of course, he and one of his friends on the Left immediately disagreed. To which I replied:
“You may be right. It’s not a Conservative statement, it’s an American statement. People who benefit from a divided America love to put us into groups and pit us against one another. White vs Black, Gay vs Straight, Religious vs Atheist, and so on.
They know that as long as they can keep us squabbling between ourselves, we won’t pay attention to what they are doing to this country. We have all been fools, now it’s time to open our eyes and become wise. Regardless of who wins this election, America needs to heal. E Pluribus Unum, Out of Many, One.”
My reply received the expected thumbs up “Like”, along with a little anti-Trump grousing thrown in for good measure. I don’t know who created this meme, but such a simple statement can begin to heal our Nation. Please copy this image and share it with your friends. Then sit back and see what happens. You might be surprised!
Until next time.
Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.
If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it.
