The way forward.
“Not every disagreement on every issue requires a war; that’s not reasonable; that’s not responsible leadership.
We elect our leaders to govern; we expect our leaders to govern.
If you’re not protecting our people and moving our society forward, you’re not governing. You’re not doing your job.

The Grand Bargain, 2007.
Consider the art, the duty, of compromise. I believe it’s a fundamental trait we humans possess, and must adhere to, to co-exist in the world. We are a social species, which means we are meant to live together.
To live together, in this world, in this country, in our community, in our family, we must hone the skill and willingness to compromise.
Compromise: the path forward.
