I'm an American. I have compassion, empathy, and understanding. I care about my fellow wo/man. I even pray for those in other countries who would rather curse me than look at my heart.
On the other hand, I recognize how easily swayed humans are. We're influenced what to believe, and we follow. We get frustrated by our leaders, as well as by those who rebel against them. Yet outsiders judge us by those same people who frustrate us.
There's an answer, should anyone care to try: we could attempt to all see each other as humans, rather than categories.
