I know that this worries my wife. And it makes me more than a little sad. They have been good to me, even though we have had our differences. Her father is much different in political philosophy than either of us. That is okay with me except for the fact that he is intolerant of the views of others. I do know that each of us would do anything to help the other which is what really matters. So I listen to what he has to say and keep my mouth shut. I have learned in this program that each person has a right to an opinion even though I l may not agree.
In fact, what really matters in this life is that we do care about others in spite of differences.
It is how we give a hand to the other person, how we listen with our heart to really hear what someone is saying. I felt that so strongly yesterday. And today I remain grateful for my capacity to love others and to wish them the best. There is much good in each of us.
