There is so much strife in our country, and other countries, these days. Some of this is due to changing cultural divides amongst different aspects of society. Some of this is intentionally created by foreign powers seeking to break down the fabric of Western democracies. Whatever the causes, the question is, "What can we do to build communication, collaboration, and trust in society...with each other?"
Here is a great story on people doing just that from Scientific American. The underlying organization can be found here.
Basically, we can learn the skills, if we have the intention, to be able to understand our fellow citizens that see things very differently from how we do. We can come to understand that they are not just crazy, brain-washed, or malevolent. We can be that widely varied people that is strongly united on underlying foundational principles -- The United States of America.
To your health and happiness!
