We live in a contentious time, where people fiercely defend their position on politics and social issues without being willing to listen to other opinions or examine new ways of thinking about today's issues.  Name calling, racist comments, ethnic discrimination, hurtful social media postings...it makes you wonder what's happened to our nation's and our world's humanity.  On the next Another View we talk with Edina Brown, author of "Make Humanity Great Again: How the Boldness of the Conscious Can Overcome Hate". In her book, Ms. Brown talks about ways we can get our humanity back, one conversation with one individual at a time.  Join us for the next Another View, Friday, December 15 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
