Here’s a thoughtful USA Today opinion piece about our divided America, I moved from a blue state to a red state and it changed my life, written by Leah Singer.
“I was raised in California, where we like to believe diversity is applauded and opportunities abound. In many ways, California’s blue state bubble can be a very safe place to live if you subscribe to the popular liberal politics.
Over and over, I was questioned about why I would ever leave the Golden State for a “flyover” red state. This phrase alone troubled me, and the implied perception that one flies over the Midwest just to get to their East or West coast home.”
Living in a bubble cuts both left and right and Singer’s thoughtful piece offers a glimmer of hope for finding common ground again in America.
