There can be no "healing" ....

When the one who is sick refuses to acknowledge their condition. If you refuse to admit you have cancer and will not treat it, it WILL kill you. We have a very serious problem in this country and if we try to gloss over that fact we are in effect refusing treatment.
There can be no "unity" when one side refuses to concede anything and considers your side to be morally wrong and worthy of distain and worse.

No, I have no answers to this but I know in my heart that unless we do SOMETHING our country as a representative democracy is finished. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but sooner than many of us want to admit. There is a sickness stalking our land and the sooner we confront that fact the easier it will be to remove it.

It time to try a different course. Joe Biden’s agenda works for me too bad so many refuse to accept it.
