I haven't been taking part in all the yelling that's been going on. Maybe it's the part of me that used to be a preschool teacher, but I really hate it when people are mean to each other. I have an opinion about this domestic spying thing, and I bet you do, too. And maybe our opinions are different. Guess what? I still like you.

There's an ad before this song, sorry - but these words are important, so watch it anyway:

We probably have different opinions on a lot of stuff, but I want to be your friend anyway. Because we're all just everyday people:

and, like the man said, war is good for absolutely nothing:

and just so you'll know this is me & not an imposter, here's my boys U2 on the subject - Love & Peace Or Else:

So I'm at work & I can't be here much, but I'm begging y'all - please be better to each other.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
