How Do We Go Forward From Here?

I started writing a post about the election and its coming aftermath, but, you know what? I got discouraged and upset and borderline angry as I was doing so, and I realized something. That’s been the problem for a long time in this country. We are a divided people. We sit around glaring at each other, accusing each other, and refusing to so much as listen to an opposing point of view.

I don’t see it changing anytime soon. I don’t know how we begin to change the attitudes, prejudices, and privilege-based blindness that is all around us. Including us. Including them. Including me. Including you. It has to change, if we are to become one nation again. I just don’t know if we haven’t gone too far to come back. I hope not. We have a lot of work to do. All of us.
