The eclipse this year has gotten ample attention from the media, the public and even from people who never cared about the stars, the sun or the moon.
The most remarkable thing is that when the moon covered the sun, totally or partially Monday, it united the country. People gathered in parks, on rooftops and on the streets shoulder to shoulder to watch and discus the event regardless of being conservative, liberals, democrats, republicans, blacks and white. They all put their political views aside and shared a precious moment.
We do not wish to have an eclipse everyday and the solar system would not allow it, but we hope that our country, our leaders and our great citizens would put their political divisions aside and work together to address important issues facing us.
