Be considerate of opposing voices | Letter

We’re living in a time in which our country is very divided. We’re seeing everyone around us in one way: Democrats or Republicans.

People have ditched their reservations about sharing their political views in favor of vocalizing what they think is right. It isn’t just disagreements and arguments between acquaintances and friends, but between family as well.

With the recent Inauguration Day and the fight between both sides not diminishing, we need to take the time to think about how this change is going to affect the people around us and not just what it means to us alone.

The voices speaking out loud enough to be heard are doing so for a reason. We need to remember to be considerate of those voices without trying to silence them.
