The election is over. It’s time for national healing. Every citizen of the United States needs to get past the anger and upset between neighbors and countrymen. The division, caused by differences in conservative and liberal ideology, needs to take a back seat to our love for our country, our desire for peace, and national healing in our nation.
The accusations of racism, thrown around for the past several years, needs to be set aside. No true believer in Jesus is racist. We understand God created us, and he chose our color. In fact, there is no male or female, no black or white or brown. We are all loved by Father God and equal in his eyes. Father God has no favorites. In turn, we must love one another. We need to remember, it isn’t racist to disagree on politics…left or right. It’s just a difference of opinion.
As believers, forgiveness and understanding must be our guide toward national healing. We must focus on the positive things our country has going for it. We are a generous people. When natural disasters occur anywhere, here or abroad, Americans give millions of dollars to help. Numerous folk travel to the affected areas to help with medical assistance, temporary housing, cleanup, and rebuilding. We are willing to donate time and money to help others in our communities who need help. We are an industrious nation. Most people want to work and are willing to do what is needed to support our families.
As a rule, we are a tolerant people. We don’t all agree on every aspect of life…the choices people make, but most of us understand each of us has free will to choose their own path and in this country the freedom to do it. This is something we all want to preserve.
Most citizens are good and upright, we simply have a different vision for our country is headed and how to get there. In the past, we have celebrated our differences, it’s one of the things that has made us great and we’ve been stronger for them. God created each of us as individuals with the ability to reason and think…to look at the facts and decide our course of action for ourselves. We need to return to the understanding, diversity is good. We need to relearn how to listen, exchange ideas, and compromise.
Don’t let differences in politics and philosophies create division between us. Life is too short and would be very boring if we were all alike. Let us join together to accept the results of this election, it’s time for national healing. Let’s support the new government and pray for all our leaders. God Bless America, the land that we love.
