Now America Decides: Is This Just The End Of The Beginning?

They say the trajectory of a man/woman’s life is composed of a million little choices. And so it is with a nation. The murdered MP Jo Cox (yes, she was murdered on the streets of England pre-Brexit) was known for saying: “There is more which unites us than divides us”. She knew those divisions will always be with us: political, ideological, social, economic, cultural, religious, racial, national. By these definitions, we are different. But whether we choose to up the ante in fighting over these and destroy each other, or respect those differences and work together, for mutual benefit and survival, is entirely up to each of us. The hope of America, and of organizations like the United Nations, in view of all failings, is still, “E Pluribus Unum”: Out of Many, One. Lincoln said, though this today may sound like a voice in the wilderness: “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.”
