The answer to our politics starts in the family. It certainly is not easy. Because we no longer need each other for our physical existence, we let our emotions, not our hearts, rule the day.
It is so much easier to walk away than to work on the problems, but it all starts with desire. Do we desire to cooperate, to elevate our compassion and forgiveness to benefit our children and our community or do we not desire to change ourselves in the hope of diplomacy, peace and value?
“Aye”, said Caesar, “there’s the rub.” In a Democratic republic, there is no separation.
