President Trump "setting the tone" for our nation

I hear and read a lot about President Trump “setting the tone” for our nation. But I wonder, since we are a nation of, by and for the people, should we not set the tone and then demand it from our leaders? President Trump was elected by an angry and determined middle class that had been used, abused and forgotten. We wanted and needed a fighter, someone who liked and respected us and who knew how to fix things. We chose him, understanding his imperfections as well as his strengths. We are the backbone of America. The early to rise, late to bed, hardworking, family people. We take care of our own business and often suffer in silence. For the first time in many years we saw a leader who would represent us.

There is enough incivility to go around and it didn’t start, nor will it end with one person or one party. Both sides can point a finger at numerous examples of poorly chosen or downright nasty remarks. You and I can only control ourselves, so that is what we should do. Don’t rise to the bait at email postings. Don’t engage in arguments, political or otherwise with family and friends. Listen to others. Listening doesn’t constitute agreement and often is all that is needed.

We can also exercise our vote to bring people on board who play well with others. United we stand, divided we fall. Those are not just words, they are a philosophy to which we should all aspire.
