I Have a Dream Inspirational Stone

Inspirational Greeting Stones

During the last 20 years, the United States has become more divided than ever before.  Partisan views have become more dominant than ever, and power seems to have become more important than the people.  I do not judge which party is right.  I only question if our elected officials place the people first and their party second.  I listen to the arguments and sometimes feel that throwing engraved stones at each other is more important than a bi-partisan strategy.

When I was a kid, my dad showed me that two wrongs don’t make a right.  Just because someone does something dumb it doesn’t mean that I should also do something dumb to get even.  Compromise is not a dirty word.  Sometimes you have to give up something to get something.  That is the way it used to be in politics.  You can’t always have it your way or the highway.  To our elected officials, I say think beyond your political base.  Help the folks, before you help yourselves.
