Despite all the ways we might continue to disagree, we absolutely must recommit ourselves to one common goal: the pursuit of truth.
At the very least, we owe it to ourselves, and the truth, to follow the story, the claim, back to its author. To ask what’s in it for them. To follow the money. To verify it against another source. To understand the context. To explore possible alternatives.
Choosing not to engage, and by engage I mean only respectful and loving dialogue and action, no longer seems acceptable.
On Saturday, Steve and I spent most of the day visiting family. We climbed into the Honda Accord around 7 a.m. Saturday, and after a stop at Starbucks for drinks and breakfast sandwiches, we headed South and West for multiple stops.
