We Have a Vision for America Too

In the wake of one of the most important presidential elections of our lifetimes, we bare witness to last minute blitzes from both parties' presidential hopefuls in efforts to attract or persuade the few undecided voters in key battleground states. The pitch- their visions for America. From campaign ads to the coveted "get out the vote" ground games, the fight for who has the best vision for America is in action.

But let's forget about the presidential campaign for a moment. We have a vision for America too. I, myself, have a vision for this great country as well. We all want better not only for our own lives, but for the strength, longevity, and the integrity of our country.

When I wake up every morning, I wonder what I can do to improve upon not just my life but the lives of others. I wonder what is the perfect vision for America. What I have come to realize is that my vision alone, or anyone for that matter is the perfect solution for our country when contrived separately. But collectively, as a unit, side by side, hand in hand, our vision for whats best for our country, our people, and our future poses as the best solution.

The problem that is faced is that many of our visions for what is best for the country is predicated solely on what is best for us- individually. We must learn to work collaboratively to share and mesh our visions, not just from a political party standpoint, but also as a community, city, and national collective. We, too, have a vision for America. Let us not just leave it in the hands of one person (or the few representing us).

Go Vote tomorrow!!!!

God Bless
