January 25

I'm sitting here watching the presidents state of the union. While watching it my Dad explained how for the first time in a long time the congress is mixed. They aren't sitting divided; republicans on one side, democrats on the other. For some reason I easily made a connection between this and slavery. A country divided, then over slavery, now over which party you are a part of. The issues may have changed, but have we? We will always disagree, there will always be those two definined groups. Compromise - I think that word needs to begin to describe our country more than it does now.

  1. Compromise is certainly what our country is all about. The question that remains is which side is going to give up something or more as part of a compromise and are they willing to do it? The South was not willing to compromise on the issue of slavery, believing that it was their right as a state to determine what went on in their state. Have we really changed that much?
