“All for one and one for all.”( Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers)
I never enjoyed engaging with others in contentious issue confrontation and feel proud that I survived to have completed over thirty years of successful, multicultural teaching with such peaceful intentions. Thus removing a timely potion of “Critical Thinking” from my bag of teaching tricks, two basic questions comes quickly come to mind. 1) Is there any hope for building “bridges” of common agreement rather than “walls” of polarizing dissent in today’s angry “right wing” vs. “left wing” political environment? (2) What Democratic political candidate from this week’s national debate for U.S. President would best capture such compromise appeal to bring our country together again? In my hope to elect a new leader who embraces unity’s call for ALL AMERICANS, I thus present some thought provoking images in the self made, slide show below from our recent road trip travels.
