We need to talk...
Not usually words that you want to hear. Or words that lead anywhere good.
In this instance we do need to talk.
The problem is, have we gone too far to actually hear what is being said on the other side of the conversation.
In some areas maybe...
But hopefully not.
Sometimes we are having separate conversations. Talking over one another without hearing each other.
Unfortunately there are some important issues that affect us all, and we need to be able to discuss them.
Health insurance is a big one.
Climate change is another.
Immigration is on the list.
Another is criminal justice and prisons.
And income inequality is yet another.
There are more but that is quite a list to start with. So let's take a deeper dive into each one.
This will be a series of posts taking on these topics that we struggle to, but really do need to talk about.
