I am not one to shout about my political beliefs.
In fact, I really don’t even whisper them.
I certainly don’t share those beliefs on my style blog.
I know where I stand on most issues, and like most people, there are gray areas in which I struggle.
But here’s what I know for sure.
I know that as a country we are growing more and more hateful.
I know that I’m sick of opening Facebook and seeing scurrilous attacks on each other from both sides.
I know that people re-post pictures from groups with crazy names like “Democrats Are All Going to Hell” or “Republican Are the Scourge of the Earth” and that these pages have thousands upon thousands of likes, and that it sickens me that we as a people detest each other so much.
I know that the collective “you and I” are never going to see eye to eye on every issue, but I also know that there shouldn’t be room for such terrifying hatred in the midst of it.
I firmly believe that we should all have our say, but for goodness sakes, say it nicely. Get worked up, debate the issues with those who disagree, but do it with respect. My kids would be sitting their butts in a nice long time out for treating each other so unkindly, but as adults we justify our actions and words in the name of our beliefs.
Enough is enough.
And in other news, I wore an outfit, and here it is.
skirt – The Vintage Gypsy, tights – DKNY, top – Von Maur
