To the Editor:
There was a recent letter to the editor about hatred in our country and lying in politics. The writer made it sound veryone sided.
I agree that the hatred and lying need to stop, but it is not a one sided issue. Our president tells lies and says hateful things, but he is not alone in doing this. Many other politicians and celebrities are equally guilty. Samantha Bee, Robert De Niro at the Tony Awards and Roseanne were all wrong.
We don't have to agree on everything, but we do have to be civil when we disagree. All of us, right now, need to pledge that we will do our best to avoid using language that only inflames and start looking for common ground and ways to speak with each other politely.
Our nation will not survive unless we can come together to discuss and reach compromises on the issues that divide us.
