I know this may sound selfish, but my goal now is to get home, as debt-free as possible and help take care of my parents as they're getting quite old and not long for this world, and my sister and her husband who has cancer. By July I think that I may just realize that goal.
There are people, perhaps forces, in this world that seek to control you by causing you to feel hate towards another for being different. They want you to focus on that hatred. If they can compound enemies for you they will.

Just because someone disagrees with someone else on issues doesn't mean they hate that person. It is that person's perception of reality. Just like for us christians, jews, buddhists, hindu, athests or muslims who disagree with others and eachother.
Not everyone is going to see eye to eye. War happenes because people think and feel differently which is a part of the human condition, otherwise we'd all be mindless and soulless machines marching to the beat of a hivemind like a troop of pissants or bees.
We learn that our perceptions often cause conflict and we have to learn to see past our own perceptions and see the other persons point of view (perception) if we are to become united as humans.
