The current political environment has made it very difficult for people to talk with others about things that matter. Friends have stopped talking to friends, family members have stopped talking to family members. Why are so many of us so divided? Why do so many discussions, especially political discussions, dissolve into anger? I think one main reason is fear. Our fear leads us to anger and our anger makes it impossible for us to hear people who see the world differently than we do. In this video I talk about how fear divides us, and I talk about what we can do to overcome our fears. We need to move forward together, not divided, and to do that we need to understand our fears.
