I am writing this letter as I am beginning to read a book about the "Cultural Revolution" in China. Somehow it reminds me of the United States.
A government leader turns people against each other. Does this sound familiar?
Recent events in the U.S. Capitol involved people turning against one another. This is what happened in China.
Who is to blame? Should we blame the leaders? Should we blame the followers? Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions.
More productive questions would be, "How can we make things better in the future?" "How can we bring people together?"
We cannot change the past. We can concentrate our thoughts toward creating a more harmonious future.
