My sister said it well

With all the anger and argument flying around social media right now, my younger sister posted a simple note saying she refused to believe the only choices are to either agree with someone or hate them. She reserves the right to love people she disagrees with. Well said! And you can disagree with the people you love, and still love them, and they need to allow you the right to think for yourself if they love you. When all is said and done, we're still family, friends, and neighbours, and it would be a shame to ruin those relationships because of politics (which could shift again in another four years, and then again in another four years...).

We can differ in our views of how things should go, but we can't lose sight of the fact that we're all rushing through space together on this tiny speck of a planet, and we need to find a way to get along and share this speck peacefully. And, as my mother would say, if you can't share nicely, then no one gets it.
