I am interested in fairness and justice for everyone. I learned early on engaging in debate will do little to change the minds of people who refuse to listen or consider my position. I prefer to remain focused on the overall goal of finding a way to reduce negativity and discord in order to find common ground. I would rather spend my energy teaching my children how to be tolerant of those who have different views and to be responsible for the choices they make in their lives.
