AA1. It Starts With Us

Uploaded: August 9, 2017 |  0 Comments  | 

These are difficult and changing times. It seems almost impossible that people might hold their own beliefs without destroying each other. We crave a more compassionate world, and we long for a return to an environment of public civility and language that unites rather than divides, yet everything we see causes us to lose hope. The message to be communicated loudly and clearly in this presentation, however, is that all is not lost. While differences in ideas may appear to tear apart friends, families, coworkers, and community members, we can refuse to let that happen. Embracing simple, profound actions can have transformative consequences. In fact, we can create the decent and civil world all of us want by each of us focusing on the simple things that bring people together – demonstrating empathy, listening, and finding common ground. We are not helpless in the face of heartbreaking brokenness we see around us. This is a call to action. We can create a better world, and it starts with us.
