So, tomorrow is a pretty big day in this country. Itís Trump v.
Biden. The control of The Senate and The House of
Representatives is at stake as well. The direction of the
country may dramatically change. Or, it may stay the course.
Some will be happy about the outcome and the other half wonít.
Thank g-d however that the non-stop commercials from the
candidates will finally come to an end.
Whoever wins tomorrow, I hope that it is with finality and court
battles donít ensue like in 2000. It will only continue to
divide us and drag the process on.
Regardless of tomorrowís outcome, at the end of the day, you are
still neighbors. As we all know, life is more enjoyable if you
get along with your neighbors, regardless of their political
affiliations or whether they are conservative or liberal. I
cannot believe how many people I know that no longer speak to
each other because they support one candidate or another. Iíve
seen it in my family. Iíve seen it with friends and fellow
attorneys. Iíve certainly seen it on Facebook.
Is this really what we have become? If we have different
political ideas, we canít be friends? We canít be family? We
canít be neighbors?
Letís not fall into that trap. Letís have respect for each
otherís position. Letís talk about politics calmly, rationally,
and agree to disagree. Maybe itís even better not to talk
politics at all. But no matter what happens tomorrow, life goes
on. We will still have work and bills to pay on Wednesday. We
will still have the same responsibilities. And no matter what,
letís make sure that we still remain family, friends and
neighbors. Letís show our children and grand-children that
while we may have differences we MUST learn to live with each
other and treat each other with dignity and respect. It is a
responsibility of all of us and makes all of our communities a
better place to live.
