I feel compelled to write something in lieu of the 2 mass shootings that recently happened. My belief is we need to start with the family and especially with how we are choosing to raise our children. We need to begin to work together and weave our communities instead of fighting amongst one another. "There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world then the transformation of the way we raise our children." Marianne Williamson, best selling author. We need to model for our children what it looks like to listen, and engage in a way that we show empathy and understanding. We do not have to agree, but lets at least open our minds up to a point that we can at least agree what we are doing now is not working, actually it is downright harmful. It appears to me that people are more worried about being right then actually solving the problem. I want to be a part of a conversation where we talk about building bridges instead of building walls. So lets collectively imagine for a moment what that conversation might look like.
See you on the bridge, Cate Campbell
