I recently read an article about how the current political climate has caused an increase in hate crimes. This is a very concerning development as it seems that many people are taking out their feelings about politics on others in violent and destructive ways. This is absolutely unacceptable and should not be tolerated. We need to find ways to come together and work towards understanding each other’s perspectives, rather than attacking each other. It is vital that we learn to treat each other with respect and civility, and not let our differences become a source of violence. We must come together to create a better future for all.
