Day 2612: A House Divided

Abraham Lincoln’s “House Divided” speech included this quote:

A house divided against itself, cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South.

Today, the USA government seems like a house divided, again. The whole country, the whole planet, seems like a house divided, which cannot stand.

Yesterday, I saw this:

That “house divided”  is very close to the Atlantic ocean, so I don’t know how long that’s going to stand, either.

I don’t know how to unite this house we all live in, except to keep blogging and sharing photos like these:

This comes up when I search YouTube for “A House Divided”:

    The only place the house is “united” is at the table. We’ll get through this crisis too, Ann- even though it takes time. Have a nice day, Ann

  2. Many thanks for inviting all into your house)

  3. I believe that as long as our goal is to make it a welcoming house that shelters everyone equally the house can stand some internal divisions.

  4. Australia’s house is divided as well.

  5. Many houses are divided thankfully not my personal house
