"You're not going to change anyone's mind by arguing with them."
Jaina, friend and minister
This was a casual statement that has stuck out in my mind ever since.

It's so true. When I was younger, I didn't grasp this concept. I really believed that I could argue someone into taking my side. As if.

Do you know what really helps change a person's perspective?

Careful and kind seeds planted in their minds.

My hope is that some day we can all be on the same side instead of greatly divided and angry.

Please, dear friends, I ask you to be kind.
Kind to one another.
Kind to me.
Kind to our future.

After all, no matter which side of the fence you are on, we are still breathing the same air.
