Letter to the editor: Let’s counter hatred with love
Take away the guns, knives and bombs, and the hatred is still there. Why? It’s called the trickle-down effect.
When you watch the news, you see profanity like never before from politicians talking about the other party. You see people asked to leave restaurants because of their party affiliation. Mayors tell the president not to come to their cities, that he’s not welcome.
Freedom of speech is no longer allowed unless certain people agree with what you say. Screaming is now used instead of calm discussion. No matter what you say, it’s taken as racist. Some no longer care about our country and its laws, and spend millions of dollars trying to impeach our president, instead of fixing our problems, simply because of hatred.
Until our politicians quit acting like spoiled, hate-filled idiots, things will not change. Hatred will continue to trickle down. Remember, bad things always roll down hill.
Love they fellow man. Smile and be nice to everyone you meet. And maybe, just maybe, our love will roll up hill and change will come. We can only try.
