#WQWWC – Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Autumn – Ramblings of a Writer

Ramblings of a Writer

Always a Writer

I like to think of myself as someone who is diverse in their thinking. I don’t wish to be bogged down by the dogma of others. I suppose you could say I am a “liberal” thinker. Better yet, I am a “critical” thinker who doesn’t like to judge. I prefer to examine the facts.

So, what follows are my thoughts. These are not meant to cause any discord. They are only my thoughts about unity.

Unity is all about the state of being one; oneness. If you are in unity with someone you are in agreement with them wholeheartedly. In that respect, there is no detachment from their beliefs or ideals because you have absorbed into the state of oneness with that individual.

Uniformity has a bit of a different connotation. Uniformity means that you have engaged in the state or quality of being uniform. This puts the emphasis on overall sameness or homogeneity. It infers a likeness of elements or characteristics.

Uniformity really has nothing to do with unity, in my opinion. But because two people share the same political views does not mean they will apportion the same judgments about everything else in their world view. More frequently than not, we share only a few common views with our acquaintances and neighbors. This is a critical point because it shows that humans are not sheep. We do not blindly follow because everyone is following. I hope not, at least.

I’m not going to mince words here. As Americans, we are polarized and sitting on two sides of the coin. Each side believes they are right and the other wrong. Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike are missing the point. The unifying commonality in this equation is that we are all Americans.

Americans should do what is good for ALL Americans. Will we agree on the issues all the time? NO. That is not the point, though. There must be a unity in thinking like an American. If there is a city with a water problem, that should become the problem of the American people, not just for those who are dealing with the issue in their state. If a mosquito is spreading a deadly virus that threatens the lives of unborn American children, that becomes America’s problem, not just the states that are affected.

None of these theories are simple with compact answers. The bottom line is that we must find a unity in our American heritage. The political divisions that divide us in the Congress and the Senate need to cease and they need to manage the tasks they were elected to act on for all of the people, not just a few.

We are the “UNITED STATES.” We are joined in the belief of our Constitution. ( Here
is a link to the actual transcript if you have not read what it actually says).

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to express my thoughts. Please be mindful and observe the diversity of all Americans no matter their race, faith, or beliefs. Our unity is that we are Americans and we are already great.

NOW… don’t be shy. Share your quotes about unity and what that means to you! <3

  3. I totally share your thoughts, Colleen. There’s no need for such a great divide in a Nation. What matters is what is best for its citizens in entirety.

  9. I cannot stand a house divided, either. There’s no way to keep out the rain. 🙂

    Yep. I’m in one of those moods. A tropical storm just formed over land in FLorida for the first time in recorded history.

    Yep. It’s one of those days, the kind that needs a movie with a jester, a princess, a knight, and a script so bad you’re laughing all the way through it.

  10. Hi Colleen! Thank you for your thoughts. Well said, I completely agree. We had similar views this week. The quotes are fantastic. 😀 xx

  13. I am in total agreement with you and Lincoln. Unity while respecting and even celebrating the others differences is what makes us the UNITED States of America.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
