This was written in response to the Go Dog Go Cafe’s Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge.
The Challenge: Today’s prompt: What is the biggest problem facing the country right now? If you could only change one thing, what would it be? Consider if this problem can even truly be “changed”, or if it is something steeped in our culture.
Here is my response:
Respect each other,
Regardless of difference,
If we don’t, We Die.
It’s a simple message but unfortunately, we are living in an increasingly polarised world where when people disagree with someone they are more likely to start calling them names rather than agree to differ, engage in mature debate, or just walk away.
