United we Divide. . .

In Uncategorized on January 14, 2011 at 2:06 pm

I saw an interesting bit on the news today.  It appears that politicians are going to try to stand more united in the House by getting rid of the dividing line between republicans and democrats in the seating arrangement.  Perhaps this is a good thing.  Here in Detroit, the city has called upon the citizens to help clean up neighborhoods in the city.

The point is if we all came together, would not our problems be cut in half?  Detroit needs all the help it may muster.

You see should we unite, our problems would be divided in half.  This is, as I recall, the ‘United’ States of America.

When was the last time Americans really got behind something?  Tea-parties?  War? Shootings?  Why not get behind something good for once, our Urban Areas?

It’s a theory.  While we are able to revitalize our urban areas, I hazard  to guess, as we build them, a sense of community will be built along with them.

If we are working to the common end the problems that mire this society could be cut in half.

A saying: “I can’t, we can” comes to mind when I think on this matter.

Do we love ourselves, our neighbors, families, communities and the world enough to sacrifice a little of ourselves, our time to affect lasting change?

Just a thought!
