Turning to one another is as simple as a heart-felt conversation to restore hope.  It is not our differences that divide us. It is our judgment about each other. Connecting through conversation is the natural way we as humans think together. Conversation takes time. We need time to sit together, to listen, to worry and to dream together.

As this age of turmoil tears us apart, we need to reclaim time to be together. When we begin listening to each other, and when we talk about things that matter to us, the world begins to change.
Reality doesn’t change itself. We need to act.  —Jo Ann Mast
