Twitter is filled with acerbic, profane screaming that solves nothing. The political divide widens with every vulgar post.

"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?"–Cicero
