The world and its issues are not black and white. There are many nuances and tough choices lurking in the gray areas. We can and should bring these issues into the light, and have open and honest difficult conversations about them. We need everyone to be involved, so that we hear all sides of the issue. We CAN do this; it will take a willingness to listen to each other and to stop dividing people into “with us or against us” camps. I hereby proclaim this a safe space for honest conversation and all viewpoints. You do not have to agree with me to post a comment here, and you do have to be respectful of people who have other beliefs than you do. Yours is not the only way, and neither is mine. Respectful dialogue is what will move us forward. We can find common ground.
