Do we want to be a people, one people?
This is the fundamental question that most often divides our representatives -- how are we to be together.
Loosely? If all people have some evil in their hearts, then loosely would seem best.
But if we are born innocent, and any evil we have is only learned, then we might be redeemed by a helping hand. One might reach out to grab and rescue a hand from the rough waters of the sea.
Will we choose to be more than only allies?
Might we be a People? The American People.
"Together," Obama says, and this needs to become the heart of his message this fall. Because "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
