Lately it seems that everyone is arguing about something. Personally, I’m becoming overwhelmed by the volume of the cacophony of sound being generated by all of the competing screaming voices in our American culture. Pick a topic, any topic, and there are people ready to argue. Of course there are political, cultural, and social issues about which I have strong feelings. These things make me want to scream too. But for a moment, just a moment, I wish everyone would stop and turn their judgment of each other into compassion for each other. How awesome would that be?
