This brought me to tears. People who pay attention, who open their eyes, who see people for who they are, who are able to pause for a moment and step back, who have the capacity to empathize, can actually undergo profound changes and reconsider their positions.
Overcoming ignorance and/or fear by familiarizing oneself with opponents, educating oneself, listening and communicating, getting up close and personal, are key to resolving our differences.
I wish more people would follow this man's lead. Knowledge is power.
