To the editor,

As I watched the various memorial services for Sen. John McCain that he had orchestrated, I was struck by the obvious theme. The theme was the hope that we would return to a time of bipartisanship, honesty and civility. He hoped that we would turn away from the present era of tolerating obvious lies, immorality and bullying.

The speakers at the various services, purposely chosen from both parties, parroted these same thoughts and inferred that, if we begin accepting immorality, lying and bullying by our leaders as the norm, our democracy is in jeopardy.

Isn't it time to accept the fact that those who don't agree with us are not evil individuals who want to take our country down, but simply patriots who have a differing view of how to solve our problems?
