One thing we’ve seen in the last few days is that, no matter their political perspective, people are fed up with feeling their deeply-help values aren’t having or haven’t had influence over public policy. Yes, our world is more uncertain than it was a week ago. We don’t understand each other yet we must if we’re going to move forward together as a society. Tragically, we don’t seem capable of talking about it right now.
What have we learned about ourselves in the last week? What have we learned about our neighbours? What have we learned about our own blindness? Have we learned anything at all about working through our differing perspectives or do we still believe we’re right and they’re wrong? Will that get us anywhere?
