Wonderfully said, old friend.

Jeff, I appreciate very much your thoughts shared here. I too share your sentiments. I am one to insist that we must keep a line of dialogue open on the many issues that divide us. Your suggestions would help to create a good foundation from which to build relationships and common ground and promote healing for an ever more divided country.

Dialogue is one thing, but I don't think we are even speaking the same language! I'm not promoting civil war, but the other option is disintegration from within as long as we continue down the road of abandoning our Judeo-Christian Biblical morality that was fought for with lives and fortunes by our forefathers. Lots of prayer needed for both wisdom and endurance for the ever-increasing minority of Americans who live and believe in the values that our Constitution was built upon.

Beth Sperber Richie

We also need to listen differently when we are having a dialogue with someone who doesn't share our opinion. We need to listen to understand, rather than half-listening while forming our response simultaneously.

"Seek first to understand, then to be understood." Stephen Covey
