In the United States right now, there is a great schism (skiz-um), mainly in the area of politics. It is a schism between the Republicans, the Democrats, and the people who don't support either party. It is a 3-way schism.
So, what is a schism? It is a split or division between groups of people, generally with respect to government, religion, or cultural ideas.
The Protestant churches were born from a schism in the Catholic church. The Independent Party was realized from a schism in the Democratic and Republican parties.
Though a schism can be unsettling, it generally results in new ideas and change for the better.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
