I’m aware we may not see eye-to-eye. I understand my passion, or lack thereof, can be intense and infuriating. I am unlearning old ways of thinking and habits while acquiring new ways of understanding the world and people. We need not be good friends, but I trust if we are civil, operate through a lens of love and justice, we can sit at the same table. The table is long and there are empty seats beside my own. You may sit next to me. I have a lot to say, but please go first. I’m listening.
