From Bill Moyers: WE REALLY DO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER


When people get in trouble with being uncaring and unkind, it usually involves religion, interactions over money, or politics. It’s usually about our religious differences and whether we are a country that does or does not recognize one’s same personal view of God or whether we believe it’s necessary to take care of people who need help or not. It’s the reason why our country is so divided. It’s the reason Donald Trump is President of the United States. His election, in too many ways, caused us to hate rather than love each other.

Get rid of all these three evils and we will be a kind and a gracious world. In such a world a Donald Trump would not exist.

To the extent “We Really Do Care for One Another” is just a good sounding story, anecdotal stories that never actually happened. They are, nevertheless, in essence,  true to life.

I too have had personal experiences with “ . . . moments of common, gracious, human kindness.”  It does keep me optimistic about who we authentically are.

Please give it a read.
