It’s so easy to stay inside our little rooms of perceptions and opinions. These days social media can make it even easier to tailor our information to only that which supports our own positions. I was taught early after my return to school to cultivate the habit of listening thoroughly and sincerely to those who completely disagree with you. Professors Marcie Sims and Sandy Johanson, thank you for teaching me to never stop broadening my horizons, to never live a life unexamined.
