The fork.


Today is voting day.

I hope everyone who reads this is voting.  I hope.  As Americans, it is our privilege, and our duty.  It is an honor to live in a free country, with free choice, and the right to vote.  I hope you do.

I voted a couple of weeks ago.

As far as the Presidential Race is concerned, I believe I chose the candidate who best represents our freedoms, our rights, our places in a free society, where all people are regarded as equals.  Equals.

As soon as our human rights are compromised, so are our freedoms.

This I am certain of.

At the moment that one person is put in power, who consistently speaks with hatred, vehemence, and supremacy toward entire race, class, or group of people, we run the risk of losing a truly free society.  Completely.

We have seen this throughout history, through the genocide of entire “races” of people.  It was an atrocity to mankind.

We stand at the brink between following a path of hatred, and segregation, and possibly destruction … or choosing the path of equality and freedom.

I hope you are able to see which direction is true.

Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.– Mahatma Gandhi

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. — Albert Einstein

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. —  Jesus Christ
