I find it interesting how people see the same picture, video, or statement and draw the exact opposite conclusions. Who’s right and who’s wrong?
Do we allow our own biases, hatred, pride, and desires to both blind and color what we see and hear, the truth merely an annoying buzz in the ear, or a soft shadow in the corner of our eye?
Is it anything new?
If not, can we truly hope for peace with those we can never agree with on important issues, let alone together solve the problems we all face? Heck, we can’t even agree on what those problems are! How can we then hope to find solutions?
No good decision was ever made when led by anger, fear, or hatred. Yet here we are.
And who are we to blame? Is it a politician in Washington? A nameless bureaucrat? A podcaster or radio/television host?
The devil himself?
Or should we simply look in the mirror?
