What a year of controversy
Wear a mask or don’t wear a mask.
Prosecute the police or let ’em go.
Vote for Trump or vote for Biden. (Neither. But that’s just my opinion & I respect you if it’s not yours.)
Agree & disagree
AmperArt #162 Agree & Disagree was inspired by this eloquent & profound piece of writing posted by a friend. (I don’t know who the author is.) I made a few typographic enhancements (em dash, proper ellipsis, single exclamation points) — but the ampersands were already there. [Insert smiley face here if you wish.]
This is what many of us have been thinking and I couldn’t agree more!
I’m sick of covid-19.
I’m sick of blacks vs. whites.
I’m sick of Democrats vs. Republicans.
I’m REALLY sick of the media.
I’m really sick of the wearing a mask debate.
I’m sick of no one being allowed to think what they want & feel how they do without offending someone.
I am sick of the people who are out there jumping on the bandwagon just to spread hatred. And start riots, looting & destroying others’ properties.
I am sick of blaming the world for the sins of a few.
We’re one race — the human race.
You want to support Trump? You do it! It’s your choice!
You want to support Biden? You do it! It’s your choice!
You want to believe in God? You do it! It’s your choice.
You want to believe in magical creatures that fly around & sprinkle fairy dust to make life better? Awesome…you do it!
BUT how about being MATURE enough to be able to deal with the fact that everyone doesn’t have the same exact mind-set as you. Having our own mind-set is what makes us all individuals and beautiful. If you can’t handle that fact…oh well!
I don’t have to agree with everything you believe in & YOU don’t have to agree with me.
It’s your choice! It’s my choice!
Just be a decent human being.
You don’t have to like this post or agree. It’s your choice!
There’s really nothing more I can add to this post except to say I agree.

Thanks for sharing that message Chaz. I’m happy to agree! And excited to see that others (probably most of us) feel this way. It gives me hope that people may soon come to their senses, and return to the realm of respect that is necessary to enjoy the rights that we have, and to maintain the opportunity to continue the work of making things better.
Thank you, Chaz!
I AGREE with your message, especially timely for tonight’s Presidential Debate.
Four years ago, we may not have agreed with each other. Today we do. We all need to remember that we might not agree today but in the future we might.
