In fact, it’s the opposite. It takes courage to reach out. Backbone to be truly open to discussion. Compassion to see the good in the other side. Enlightenment to understand that all our elected leaders should be working for all the people.
We don’t yell a lot. We’re not trying to drum up controversy or hog the airwaves. But we’ve seen enough. We’ve watched the extremes of both parties take us to the brink.
We’re not asking for much. Just for our elected officials to do the job they were elected to do:work together to solve problems. We understand it will require them to get out of their comfort zones. It will take fresh, independent thinking. It will take courage. But make no mistake; it’s the only thing that will ensure a brighter future for our children and grandchildren.
