Just Today

We all have our own idea of what America is.

This country has to go through its growing pains. Every day is uncharted territory.

So much good has come from one nation. So much bad has come from one nation.

Most citizens do what they hope is best, while some with hubris, while some with love.

As with the rest of the world, the citizens of this country range from every extreme.

The thoughtful always return after the stampede.

The times they are always a-changin

Now is no different

I won’t ask you your affiliation

Neither your politics nor your religion matter to me

I respect your opinion

Was that then? Was that yesterday?

It is today.

Neither ownership of guns nor my choice at the store is freedom

Your freedom may be different, I’m happy it is.
