There's stress. As if we're about to collapse. It's not going to happen. We are going through another challenge is all. If there is one thing we've learned from our history it's always two steps forward and one step back, or vice versa. But we always pass through and we grow.
"As iron sharpens iron so one man sharpens the character of his friend." At this point, it may be hard to see friendship, but it's there. Most of us taking one position or the other will stop to help someone stranded, never asking where they stand politically. When a disaster hits most of us respond generously, politics NEVER enter the mind.
We are The Tribe of Tribes and America will always be strong as a result. We will continue to grow and improve with every challenge.
