I recently visited Toronto. While there, I witnessed a society working toward acceptance of everyone. Our country is at a fork in the road, and we have started down the wrong road.

While in Ontario, I viewed an ad on TV for the province’s 150th anniversary and thought to myself, “Not so long ago I would have thought this was about America.” (It includes a Syrian refugee family, a Vietnamese immigrant and an Ojibway father and son.) The staff of the mayor of Toronto, John Tory, supplied me with a link for those who wish to view it (http://bit.ly/2kukfF7).

The world is not the enemy that will destroy us. We will destroy ourselves with our greed, selfishness and hate if we do not change our course.
