Its Up To Us To Make America Great

Half the country is excited at the hopes a new president may bring to the United States, half the country is acting like the world is coming to an end.  That's the beauty of America.

Trump's goal is to make america great again. Who can argue with that?  

Love him or hate him he tells it like it is, or at least how he sees it.  I'd rather have someone who is brazen enough to say what he really thinks then hide behind some politically correct script. There is something refreshing about having a non career politician in office. It will be interesting to see what he can accomplish. Maybe we will love the guy, maybe we will hate the guy but first we have to give him a chance to see what he can do.

Personally I don't need to agree with everything the guy says or does, what I want is a leader who can create real change.  Change that will help all Americans. The reality is the United States has too many families struggling, something needs to be done.  Who knows if he will be the answer the country needs but it's worth a try.  Anything is worth a try.

Truthfully I feel annoyed at all the whining posts on social media.  Okay so maybe you didn't vote for the guy, like many didn't vote for Obama or other past presidents....but fact is the guy won and is now officially our president.  It's time to accept reality, move on and try to unite as a country instead of continuing to divide it even further.  No one person can unite a country it takes everyone working together.  

Instead of unfriending those who don't agree with us it's time to start truly listening to each other. It's may seem easier to shut out those who disagree with us then to try and have a open, honest discussion about the differences that exist.  We have become a society that is so quick to judge. What makes any of us better than the other?

What do the protests accomplish but to divide us.  These protesters display the same actions and behaviors they claim to detest....bullying, discrimination, harassment, hate, name calling, judging, labeling, violence, riots and so on.  Seriously if you don't agree with their beliefs and ideals they basically open war upon their victims.

Think this quote says it best "It's okay for you to believe what you believe.  It is not okay for you to insist that everyone else believe the same as you."

We live in a world where not everyone believes the same things, nor holds the same ideals, morals, virtues and so on.  That's life you cannot make people believe in things they don't.  The key is finding a way to compromise so both sides feel content, safe and understood.  For instance by boycotting events like some of the Democrats are doing it only creates more divide, they should be attending and trying to talk the issues out instead of retreating.

We are not only all Americans but humans just trying to live the best life we possibly can. If we can't find a way to unite, work together, keep open minds and stop judging each other it doesn't matter who is president nothing will ever change. Instead of bullying, whining, rioting, vandalizing, even resorting to violence....everyone needs to calm down, focus on creating intelligent discussions and real change.

Nothing will ever change until we can all put aside our differences and truly listen. Fact is both sides are close minded and until both sides can open their minds no real change can take place. 

Truth is making America great again is up to all of us.  The change must begin at an individual level. And if we want our voices heard we must find ways to intelligently do it.

God bless America, it's people and all those who are struggling.  May the new president and administration be guided to do the right thing, to help everyone not just some and truly make this country great.

What would you do to make America great again?
