- People who differ politically love the same things — our children and grandchildren, our country, the natural world.
- Many who differ politically harbor the same doubts — that what's being done (or not done) to care for the things we love is the best or the right thing to do.
- Yes, people may differ on what the best political solution is. But what if, instead of starting by arguing over solutions — over "the place where we are right" — we began by sharing our loves and doubts?
- I suspect that our political conversations would be much more productive because they would proceed from common ground.
