A land divided

We are a land divided, despite all efforts: 
Divided, not just by mountains and rivers, 
But by divisions and assumptions, 
Thoughtlessness and cruelty — yet still, 
Our forefathers had it right; E pluribus unum: 
Out of many, one.
 In diversity we will find our strength — 
The strength we need to coexist 
And solve the challenges facing us. 
But we need to be willing to open our hearts 
And listen to both the wounds 
 And the wisdom of the other.
