The division in our country needs to end. One of the biggest threats to America and to freedom is the polarization, division, and hate among our people. Abraham Lincoln once said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Those words are still true today.
We must not allow politicians, the media, the talking heads, and social media to manipulate and turn us against one another. We must not participate in the destruction of our nation. We need to fight to protect free speech – even for those we do not agree with. Healthy debate, free-thinking, and free speech are the foundation of a free nation. We must never forget that.
We are all God’s creations and we all just want to be loved and listened to. We all just want to be treated with fairness and kindness. Let us always remember that. Let us get back to loving one another undeterred by our differences and unwavering against our adversaries.
I am a man who loves Democrats, Republicans, Everyone, America – and I love Mightily! As a husband, a father, a navy combat veteran, and a pastor – I dream of seeing the country I’ve faithfully loved and served united instead of divided. I dream of seeing love rise up against hate. I dream of defeating division – the division that is destroying America. At this pivotal point in history, I choose to lead by example. An example, I dream, will ripple all across America as the beginning of a new movement.
Together we must rise up against hate and defeat the division that is plaguing our nation. Together, we are the solution. Together, we win.
