The news and social media are flooded with images and stories or how divided it seems we all are. We’re portrayed as all being either liberal or conservative. And according to the media, depending on your political beliefs, you’re right and they’re wrong, you’re good and they’re evil, you’re informed and they’re ignorant…

It’s naive to think that somehow 330 million Americans can be categorized as either liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican.

Just as introversion and extroversion aren’t binary, neither are any of us when it comes to our beliefs about how we see the world. As much as I’m hopeful for it, electing Biden this fall won’t solve everything. Now, during the election, and afterwards, let’s not forgot that amidst all of our differences, we’re also human and very similar. Let’s use that to find some common ground — it’s the only way we’ll ever start to make positive, lasting change in this country.
