Both Sides Now

For the past few years it seems Americans have been polorized on just about any conceivable issue. Today I read in the paper reactions to the story about a baby dying after being left in a car accidentally. To my surprise, most people asked could empathize with the mother while at the same time seeing that she should be held accountable. It made me wonder whether it takes a tragedy to bring us to see both sides of an issue. I also wondered whether we have become a nation of polarized thinkers on our own or whether our political climate has done this to us. I guess we could argue both sides of this issue too but maybe we could just ponder it for a while before reacting.
