July 13, 2016 – Compromise
Compromise is just a part of life.
At least it used to be.
At least it should be.
What happened? Why do we contemporaries find it so difficult to compromise, to find solutions in which each party gives a little — not so much as to violate principles — and we actually move forward and get something done. You scratch my back, I yours.
In recent years, so many members of both Houses of the U.S. Congress should be ashamed of themselves for their inability to practice the beautiful art of so many of their predecessors, the art of compromise.
Well, we can all start with ourselves and give our representatives an example. Let’s watch for moments this week when we can put ourselves in another’s shoes, give a little, work together, and move forward for the good of all. The common good.
Even if it’s just compromising with your spouse (date, etc.) about when to leave the party!
