On my way to work I saw a bumper sticker that read "the problems we're facing right now will not be solved by the person and/or persons who created them." I instantly thought of our politicians and blamed them for our problems and agreed that yes - they caused the problems and yes - they would not be the ones to solve them.
But really think about this. It certainly is easy to blame everyone else for the problems when in reality, the problems have been caused by a combination of a lot of factors. We need to accept accountability and move forward and yes, I believe that even though we created the problems, we are capable of solving them. We need to stop blaming other people and just get it done.
