Too much division is hurting the country

"What is important here is understanding that neither Trump's hoodlum insults nor the progressives' self-indulgent grievances look for answers. They live by conflict without end." -- Georgie Anne Geyer.

In the Nov. 22 edition of the Daily Herald, Geyer wrote a good article. While I don't agree with her assumption that the Trump administration is corrupt, I do like the idea she went after both Trump and the progressives. For one, they are living by conflict and not working together to find answers.


I feel the president is doing well with the economy and going after terrorists, etc., but what he needs to do is calm the tone with the media. He's already proven their bias, but the media has to fix that instead of getting into it with the president.

Because, honestly, you're both dividing the country.

I wrote years ago that America cannot become one big congress, always fighting never solving. Well, we've become that and we're becoming very hateful.

Let this Christmas become a season of renewal. Making spirits brighter not dimmer. We need each other. And if America is to be great again, every one of us has to be good first, from the White House, to Congress, to the media, to the people.

For if America ceases to be great, it's because it ceased to be good. We're better than that. Let us do as President Kennedy suggested. "Let us not look for the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but let us find the right answer."

When we do this, then we shall begin anew and together we shall not be weary. God bless America and Merry Christmas to all.
