People must start talking with those whose views differ

Republicans and Democrats. We hear about it all the time in the news. But, can we just hear each other out for once? Regardless of your political preference, I think that we should all sit down with the person we disagree with, and try to reason with each other and find common ground.

In today's world, we should all have a civil discussion, which is the right way to deal with what we believe in.

The wrong way is to hurl insults at each other for personal benefit.

It is time we grow up and hear each other's opinion, and go from there. If you don't like someone else's beliefs, that is fine. Just don't stab them in the back.

2019 is the time to end this disgusting war against people whose views differ. It is time to stand up, and try to reason with each other. It is the only way to propel this country forward and is the way future generations want.

So, sit down with your neighbor and discuss what both of you believe. You may not like them at first, but if you talk with them, you will understand their background.
