Each generation has or will experience events that cause division among us, perhaps it is human nature. As individuals we decide how we choose to navigate our differences wether it is politics, gender, nationality or race. Social media has provided a platform for people to voice their thoughts and opinions on that which divides us. This can lead to hateful rhetoric, but when social media is used for good it can bring us together in the best ways.
