Here’s to two-way conversation
Why do I not “unfriend” my liberal friends? Well, for a number of reasons actually.
One big reason is I do believe that open, two-way conversation is helpful and the only way to move forward. Also, sometimes my liberal friends do raise some good points that make me go back and do research. A few times, I have found they were correct, which has forced me to re-think what I believe is true.
This I have found is healthy in keeping the conversation moving forward.
The trouble today is too many people on all sides refuse to look at the facts; they hear something or read something and take it for fact. I am sorry to say have on occasion done the same. But fortunately, I do have friends, both liberal and conservative and on occasion libertarian, who have come to my rescue.
Again, this helps to keep the conversation moving forward; for when we stop listening to the opinions of others, we become closed minded and narrow thinking.
