Let’s not be narrow, nasty, and negative.~T. S. Eliot
After a year of political carnage, in-fighting, and scandals in the United States, many of us are reeling from the ugliness and divisiveness aired hourly on the news outlets and in social media.

So, can you see why I selected this photo for this week’s challenge?
I learned that very often the most intolerant and narrow-minded people are the ones who congratulate themselves on their tolerance and open-mindedness.~Christopher Hitchens

And who dare to envision a world of peace instead of war?
There is in true beauty, as in courage, something which narrow souls cannot dare to admire.~William Congreve
