365: Day 53 – Aiming for unity

The United States is in desperate need of unity at the moment and I’ve been trying to appeal to our sense of patriotism to try and get people wear a mask and social distance on social media. One person tried to derail my careful attempt at avoiding politics and divisive issue by inserting a criticism on our independence day. I remained civil. I was so glad to see the next comment supporting my call for unity because it came from a friend with the most Arabic sounding name and his profile picture has his wife wearing a Hijab. This is what I love about this country and my friends…we are a diverse group of people from all over the world. We’ve got some work to do, but the picture is not a nation full of racists like the media paints it, and it’s not all just black or white. The majority of us fall somewhere in between and beyond.
