Abraham Lincoln once said “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”.

We have never been more divided since the last election. Unknowingly, we have become the victim of our own freedom to choose and the right to express ourselves. Our love for this great nation may, ironically, have put our solidarity in great peril.

The election is over and the people have already spoken. Burning bridges in bitterness and despair is never gonna do us any good, just as Twitter rants is counterproductive.

Let us examine the words of the great Abraham Lincoln and think of where our nation is headed if we continue to undermine the efforts of our leaders. Considering the multiple “threats” facing our country these days, we need each other now more than ever. Let us regain the trust we have for this great nation just us our forefathers who fought with blood, sweat, and tears so we may enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Land of milk and honey

Think of the rapid progress we have accomplished, it is a far cry from where we started. Taking those into account and multiply it by several folds now that equality is better than ever, this makes our country even more exciting. In fact, just being born in the U.S today is already a leap towards better opportunities as compared to the rest of the world.

Moreover, diversity fuels our imagination and creativity. It is one of the backbones of our talent pool and our edge to stay competitive in the age of globalization.

We will get by

For every administration hiccups are always present but history shows that we have always been resilient if we stayed together. Think of it as birth pains and our best days still lie ahead of us.
