It’s amazing how different America has become, largely with completely different “values” in the coastal Metro areas vs the inland rural areas. If this issue (or 9/11) can’t unite America, I wonder what can? For a fairly young person, I have not context. Has America always been this divided or is this really a new phenomena?
