I have had the most amazing conversations during my travels the past week. All it required was a willingness to connect with the person sitting next to me. Some were Republicans, some Democrats, some Independents. Each of them had something interesting to say, and because I wasn’t forcing my opinion on them, they did not feel that they had to try and change my mind.
The result was a very intelligent and thoughtful discussion about some very emotional subjects. And when we parted, it was with a smile, a hug, exchanging our contact info. Because the one thing we all seemed to agree on was the need for Dignity and Love.
“Today I will have an open mind about who I might meet, being willing to share our humanity.”
