We did it. We survived another election year. I'm writing this post in advance, so I don't know the result of the election, but unless something very strange happened, we know who the next President of the United States will be.
What an ugly election year this has been! Politics have put wedges between Facebook friends, and the general feeling has been one of yuck. I don't think we were quite at Civil War discord, but it was still pretty bad.
Today's challenge is to remember that we are all more alike than different, and to reach out and thank someone who holds different political beliefs than you. We demand reaching across the aisle from our politicians; we should be able to do the same.
Thanks for the freedom to differ and still be friends.
