Social Media Exposes Wear In Social Fabric
How long will it take until headlines like this; with this message; sink into the Social Fabric in a way that promotes real understanding of the problems we face as a Nation.
Is the weave a little worn?….certainly. Some say it’s torn, reminiscent of times when wear and tear appeared on Old Glory when she carried less stars amid the sea of blue. I disagree.
I’ll concede to wear, tear or both, by saying “who cares?” I question the assumption that to represent division on an issue, you should draw a line down the middle and split like-minded people apart in the one area we should be nurturing….the middle. Pull out your graphs and pie charts, folks. I don’t think the outliers are pulling their weight.Resort the data. Divide us in half if you need to, but leave out the left and right quarters. Leave the middle intact.To me, it’s reassuring that Politics in this Country has long ignored the middle, yet here we stand, just like we’ve always stood. We’re just waiting for enough people to wake up from their feast.
Don’t believe me?
Go out in front of your house, if you have one.
Look at the stars and stripes, if you fly them.
Are they worn around the edges or ripped down the middle?
If torn down the middle, read the label.
