The political division in this country has gotten out of control and has been for too long. As time has gone on, people have avoided discussing issues with other people that do not agree with them. People have flocked to one of the two sides, wanting to keep their thoughts in a safe space, refusing to see the other side. This is a large concern because at the end of the day, only one side will win the election. If we do not learn to act now, the political division in this country will grow even wider this next November. As a country we need to make a change in the way we listen to people who disagree with us. We must challenge our own opinions and listen to others speak. We must understand other people’s points of view so we can understand our point of view even more. In doing this, you will find that most people want to build a better America for everyone and that we are all human.
