“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” — Hippocrates
Doctors help the body heal. The body does the work, we just provide the help.
It is now time for us to help the country heal. The country must do the work, but we can still provide the help.
Now is the opportunity.
This morning, I read a wonderful blog by Aaron Stupple, MD et al (“Doctors to Donald Trump: First do no harm“), which inspired me to move.
Yes, our country is divided. Very divided. More divided than ever in my own lifetime. And those divisions have caused immense damage to our country.
You and I might not agree, but I would like to have a civil discourse with you. Communication. Conversation. Open-mindedness. Our country cannot heal until we begin to embrace these notions.
Let us reach out to those with whom we disagree and tell them that we are with them as Americans. Let us tell them what we will do to help our country move #TowardsHealing. Let us ask them what they will do to help our country move #TowardsHealing.
We have no greater calling on this planet than to help others. We are trained to help other people. Let us use this calling to help the country by joining together #TowardsHealing.
Thanks, Ryan Madanick for your post. We will reach out to the Republican team, but only if they choose to listen to our reasonable requests. We have not elected a KING, we have elected a man to represent AMERICA, in all of her diversity. Let us see who makes the first move toward uniting our greatly divided country at this moment.
I hope that the Republican team will listen. We can be the ones to make the first move, too.
