Paul Ryan said during the vice presidential debate that he thought the greatest threat to our national security was our economy. It was a pretty good answer, but he was wrong.

The greatest threat to our national security by far is the divisiveness of our people.

It's OK that we disagree. It is, in fact, imperative that we disagree in this country. But we can't hate each other. Hate is terribly contagious.

I've been hoping that those at the top were going to finally set a good example for us. I think, though, we are going to have to take matters into our own hands.

So if you are concerned about restoring the greatness of our nation, remember to do your part. Practice kindness. Be tolerant of others, if not for their sake, then for your own -- for all of us.
