Take a Deep Breath

It’s going to be ok.


People are complicated… Societies and cultures are really complicated… These are living organisms, and it’s messy. And your job as a citizen and as a decent human being is to constantly affirm and lift up and fight for treating people with kindness and respect and understanding.” ~ Barack Obama

My view of human nature is that all of us are just holding it together in various ways — and that’s okay, and we just need to go easy with one another, knowing that we’re all these incredibly fragile beings.
~ Alain de Botton

Let’s all remember to be gentle with ourselves and those with whom we disagree.

Let’s be civil. Let’s be caring.

Let’s listen, really listen, to what “the other side” is saying without shouting them down.

Let’s err, if we must, on the side of the other, at least for a while.


Do unto others…
