We’re in it together

This is not a political comment. It is not about the presidency or Donald Trump or Congress. It’s not even about Veterans Day, although that’s where this thought comes from.

In particular, it is a response to the “Saturday Night Live” show with Lt.Com. Dan Crenshaw sitting together with Pete Davidson (“‘SNL’s‘ Davidson apologizes to veteran,” Nov. 12, 2018). What happened there spotlights what should happen between everyone in these United States. “… not separated by some imaginary barrier …,” Crenshaw said, and Davidson agreed. We are all in this thing together. We are not combatants and no one is the enemy. Never forget that.

By the way, if you even think about pointing a finger at someone else, then you are part of the problem. We all need to consider, “What can I change about me?” And we need to do that every morning, getting up, and every night, going to sleep.
