An approach to the election

“When a society comes together and makes decisions in harmony, when it respects its most noble traditions, cares for its most vulnerable members, treats its forests and lands with respect, then it will prosper and not decline”

--Buddha, Mahaparinirvana Sutra

It is good to contemplate this as we approach the election. The level of discussion has become so shrill and hateful that, should we continue down this path, we will surely decline.
