It is the day after election day. President Barack Obama will be our president for another four years.
This morning on facebook I saw a friend's post. It read, "I'm getting worried about our country." Knowing this friend's political views, I'm guessing it was a response to President Obama's reelection and perhaps the Democratic Senate majority.
But here's what I want to say...
Perhaps we shouldn't worry about who was elected, whether they were "our" candidate or not.
Perhaps what we should worry about is our lack of desire to work together with people who are different from us.
Perhaps what we should worry about is our tendency to villify those who hold different opinions than ours.
Perhaps what we should worry about is our attitude that if "our" candidates don't win the country is falling apart.
Perhaps what we should worry about is what our children are learning from our behavior and what it means that we are raising them in a time when we refuse to choose other than to be polarized.
