Compromise, everybody wins

I find it an enigma there is so much to say about whether or not to build a wall, while living in an age that is in desperate need of tearing down mental, political, religious, personal and scientific walls. At some point mankind will find its way out of this mess, but it will take a while if our “leaders” continue to balance the “power” first in one direction, then shifting back to the other side. Anyone else notice how little really gets done at most levels of “government”? Divide and conquer nor socialism has ever in history benefited humanity. Remembering that on some level we are all connected, therefore harming another, is harming a part of ourselves!

Perhaps a new approach is brewing? Communication, compassion and compromise. I would speculate that the majority of people in this world are for peace, unity and creative solutions. We inherently know and can choose to say and do what is right in our heart. It’s time for these leaders to work together across all fences and aisles. If they can’t figure it out, then we’ll find others who can and will listen to and represent all of us.

When everybody comes together and helps each other, everybody wins! Pay it forward, and we all benefit. Maybe it’s time for We the People to fix this!
