Stereotyping Individuals & Party Unification
UPDATE: Senator John McCain. Aretha Franklin. And locally, Weatherman Ed Brandon. What a busy week of high profile funerals of prominent people in Celebration of the lives that were lived for the right reasons.
None of these people would want us to mourn their deaths, but rather carry on their example of of service above self.
So many of us were motivated by the mortification that was the 2016 Presidential Campaign & subsequent Election & spurred into action to speak out, get involved & to organize.
In Life & in Death, Senator McCain in particular exemplified a Bi-Partisan Spirit motivated by doing the right thing for the right reasons.
What strikes me locally within the Democratic Party is the continuance of the Tribal Mentality that refused to vote for Hillary Clinton as the 45th President of the United States.
I see it & hear it all around me everyday - online, offline, out in public in the streets.
