Emotions are running high across the nation today, and the divide among US citizens is creating a surplus of anxiety, frustration, anger or worse apathy. The presidential election is in full force and soon the greatest country in the world will have a new president to carry us forward.
Tomorrow morning some of you will wake up inspired and excited for the future. Some of you will wake up scared and worried about what the next four years will bring. And Some of you have already turned apathetic to the system, our nation and your role as a U.S. Citizen. Tomorrow, we face what could potentially be the greatest divide our generation has ever experienced.
In contrast, last week our nation experienced one of the greatest unifiers in history. The Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series and brought together millions of people for the 7th largest peace gathering this world has ever seen. The Cub’s rally and parade brought together Chicago Cub fans and Cleveland Indian fans alike. The crowd of 5 million was filled with all nationalities, value systems, political beliefs and spiritual preferences. Everyone came together in peace and their collective energy was strong enough to rise above our man-made differences to create an unbreakable force of love. A powerful example for us all to reflect on as we enter into this election.
Together we stand divided we fall. Tomorrow we are faced with a choice. Do we stand united; putting aside our man-made differences so that together The Land of the Brave can create a better world for generations to come? Or, do we divide and fall?
Tomorrow my hope is that you exercise compassion, walk in the way of kindness and choose to unite in peace with your neighbor, your friends and your loved ones. May we all remember that it’s our collective actions and words that will blaze the trail forward and create a nation admired by all.
