Americans must stand together

The division in our country is heartbreaking.

This isn’t about our political differences. This defines who we are and what we believe in as Americans.

What are we willing to accept?

Lying, bullying, disrespect for women, the disabled, entire religions and anyone that disagrees with him, and turning our backs on refugees and tearing immigrant families apart, are part of Trump’s traits.

We wouldn’t accept this behavior from our children. Why would we accept it from the president of the United States?

As Americans, we know the plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty in part reads “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

This is who we are, what America is all about and why God has blessed us.

As Christians, we know when we do this, a power much greater than the president will protect us.

We all surely must agree that we love our country and what it stands for.

We must find a way to come together as one nation, Muslims, immigrants, refugees, women, minorities and the disabled included.

Divided we will surely fail.
