While many of us wait for a chance to get a vaccine to fight the Coronavirus, I find myself wishing that someone anywhere would come up with a way to inject us all with a healthy dose of tolerance. Maybe I’m wrong but it seems to me that intolerance is taking over the landscape when it comes to the way we talk about or argue about everything from politics to the pandemic. As a people we seem these days to be far too willing to belittle others who have view points that are different than ours. I was raised to believe that everyone has a right to their opinion and everyone has a right to express their opinion, but increasingly it seems that discussion is being replaced by confrontation. Just because someone doesn’t agree with my opinion doesn’t make them a moron or an idiot, but it seems fewer and fewer people are even willing to consider that someone else opinion might have merit. I’m among the most optimistic people you will ever meet but I don’t see any indications that we’ll get any more tolerant in the days to come. That’s the way I see it.
