Thoughts about State of the Union
I was in college when Clinton started his second term. One night I found myself watching the State of the Union address, and have watch every year since. This year it was not on my radar and I missed it; however, I can summarize the response of the nation.
People who love Obama liked it.
People who hate Obama hated it.
I avoided facebook last night, because it is intolerable when it comes to politics. We have lost the ability to have conversation because we are too busy shouting how right we are.
Recently I listened to an episode of Snap Judgement. The story is about Daryl Davis and how he befriends the Klan. The results are spectacular. It is amazing what happens when we engage in conversation with people of opposing views.
