In 2016 we had a National election to elect a new President. I am not going to dwell on the fact that our choices were less than the best. There are people who walked into the voting booth and closed their eyes and whomever they pointed to, got the vote. People changed party affiliations as well as there have been on going protests, flag burning, name calling, and in general ……plain ol’ unhappiness. I was always taught that to burn our flag in protest was treason. People used to face a firing squad for treason. How times have changed!
All of this aside……what is really disturbing to me is that people are losing friends over their beliefs. Facebook used to be a fun place. I love my family and friends on face book. Reconnecting with so many people and also making new connections is something I am really enjoying and look forward to. I certainly respect your right to your beliefs regarding politics and religion…….as I hope you respect mine. Most of all, I certainly do not or will not engage in ANY heated discussion on Facebook with you about it. It is a no win situation.
You have a right to what you think and believe and so do I. It boils down to this……..the election is OVER. No matter what side you are on, we have a new leader. GIVE THE MAN A CHANCE!!!! If it were Hillary Clinton I would say the same thing – give her a chance. We have given every President elected, good or bad, a chance to prove themselves. Mistakes will be made. They have all made mistakes.
Is it worth it to lose a life-long friend because you can’t come to agreement on something that neither of you can change? Remember, words hurt and can’t be taken back. Once said and there is no turning back…….feelings are hurt and in some cases there might be a friendship gone bad. John Lennon said it so well back in the ’60s…….”all we are saying, is give peace a chance.” Let’s make Facebook fun again. I respect your right to tell me to write my Congressman about something….and I probably will do it if I agree, but let’s get over it and get on with life and keep the arguments off of Facebook. This is not directed to any one person, because there are many doing it. It is strictly my thoughts on the subject.
And with that I will leave you with a big ((((((hug)))))) until next time………
