It has been days since the election now and people are still amazing me by their actions. We all live in a land that's free, rich of culture and filled with extraordinary people. It shouldn't matter the color of our skin, sexual preference, gender, financial status, we are all Americans. It's unnecessary to show/extend hatred to others. We are all entitled to our opinions, thoughts, feelings or what have you, not everyone will agree. That's perfectly fine. Just don't treat others hostile or inhuman because their views differ yours. It's time to work together, live according and teach our children to love each other. Let's face it, in the end there is only one who has the final say. I don't understand how some say that they are Christian and love God, and then hate his brother. Please shred some insight on that to me because I just don't get it, never have never will.
It's sad how I went to vote the other day and the man standing in front of me with his son, no older than four or five, told his son that we don't vote for black people. The saddest part of the whole episode was that he said it loud enough so I could hear him and then to add insult to injury, he turns and smirks in my face. I stood there with a huge, contagious smile on my face. It's pointless and requires wasted energy to even acknowledge such ignorance. I simply feel sorry for the child because he is being taught to hate at such an early age, not that it's good at any. I only pray that our "ONE" nation, under God wakes up and work together, because if not, it is only a matter of time before extreme chaos breakout.
The night of the election overwhelmed me with emotion because after seeing Governor Romney's supporters, and then seeing all the different races, ethnic backgrounds supporting our President, it gave me hope. It gave me hope that our nation can and will work together to get back to the way we used to be and better. I hoped me see that not all people are blinded by hate, or too self-absorbed that they cannot see past the color of someone's skin. We can love each other, support each other and work together. I say this all to say, don't let a small percentage hinder your love and acceptance of others who look differently than you. Love your neighbor as you would love yourself. Treat all people equal. You don't have to agree with their lifestyle or many other things, but it isn't your judgment or duty to treat others like something on the bottom of your shoe. Keep in mind that we are all made in the image of God, and everything that God made is good!!!
Until next time, be inspired, be encouraged and be YOU!!!
