A House Divided.

Abe Lincoln in one of his famous speeches cited the phrase, "A house divided against itself cannot stand", and today that statement is even more prophetic.
America is divided over war and peace, climate control, and the right of every citizen to express his or her civil rights as God has given everyone that right.
We are now in the midst of the oldest form of local democratic expression of self government, the New England town meeting.
As the good people of our towns meet to express their individual concerns as to how the direction of government should take, let us unite in the spirit of unity and mutual respect for the opinions of others, be they differ from our own.
