We Have to Love More, Hate Less. We Got to Listen More and Talk Less.

Indisputably

John Lande

These are words of Megan Rapinoe, star of the US Women’s Soccer team, which just won the World Cup.

She continued, “We got to know that this is everybody’s responsibility. Every single person here, every single person who’s not here, every single person who doesn’t want to be here. Every single person who agrees and doesn’t agree. It’s our responsibility to make this world a better place.”

Perhaps these are just corny, naive ideas. Certainly incomplete. But they touch me.
