Have you seen that bumper sticker, or heard the sentiment elsewhere, Can't we all just get along?
Whenever I see this bumper sticker I think to myself that the answer is no. We can't always just all get along.
While I believe that we can work to overlook differences, and tolerance is often a good thing, and respect is necessary, there ARE things worth fighting for.
Recently my son Devon shared this quote from Ehud Olmert that I adore:
"We will not hesitate, we will not apologize and we will not back off...This anarchy is over. You can condemn us, you can boycott us, you can stop visiting us and, if necessary, we will stop visiting you...Never again will we wait for salvation that never arrives...[we] are now capable of standing up to those who seek [our]des...truction - those people will no longer be able to hide behind women and children. They will no longer be able to evade their responsibility... You are welcome to judge us, to ostracize us, to boycott us and to vilify us. But to kill us? Absolutely not."
This is a man who knows what he believes is worth fighting for.
How about you, is there anything you think is worth fighting for?
