In the most polarized and combative election season in modern history, it’s easy to get jaded.
As the insults fly, the parties and candidates spend their efforts vilifying each other rather than searching for common ground. Out with decorum, in with a street brawl.
Unfortunately, both sides remain focused on the bad in one another. Let’s face it, if either of the candidates were children, we’d hurriedly put them in time out.
Reminiscing about more civil times, I long for the days when we tried to find the best in each other instead of the worst. Isn’t that the message we want our kids to embrace? Aren’t civility and respect the underpinnings of democracy? To that end, I decided to take an unbiased view of each candidate in an effort to celebrate the good.
