This is the time for each of us to try to communicate more effectively and find some common ground. We can increase the likelihood of our concerns being really heard not by raising the volume of our voices but by raising the level of our communication and listening skills. We can begin this one conversation at a time:
in our committed relationships,
parent to child,
parent to teen,
friend to friend,
co-worker to co-worker
and the next person we interact with.
This is the time.
