We’re better than this divisiveness in America

Love it or leave it. Imagine if those were the only choices British colonist George Washington could have envisioned back in 1776. During the depths of the Great Depression, suppose Franklin Roosevelt had said to the American people “If you don’t like the way things are in this country just leave!” What if Martin Luther King had declared that he had a dream, but America had said “go back to where you came from?”

Imagine in 2016 when candidate Donald Trump was criticizing our country, if America had said to him, “Take your criticism and go back to Europe where your grandfather came from!”

Thankfully America is better than that.
