This is Us

For better or for worse, from time to time, all of us are connected by certain events that take place. Whether we agree or disagree, we’re sometimes forced under the same roof. Our political state is the perfect example. There are so many different views and opinions, but we’re still one Nation. Whether it’s politics, how we all felt a togetherness on 9/11, or the day after for that matter. Heck, it’s even as big as all of us sharing the same moon and stars. We’re all connected whether we like it or not.

I suppose what I’m getting at is, I don’t remember a recent time in history when a television show brought us all together for the good. When it’s talked about between friends, and even strangers on social media it’s positive. Never negative. We’re rooting for one family, if just for an hour, in agreement. I wonder if NBC realizes how much they're connecting us for the better with one little fictional television show.
