To the Editor:

Another legislative shutdown. …

Let’s let go of the blame game and move on. We deserve better, and we can do better when people talk together and truly listen to as many perspectives as possible. Most of us are done with anger and marketing tactics getting in the way of seeing each other as neighbors and fellow citizens, having mutual interests.

Yes, we can find things to work on together, and show up and get it done. And if it’s not completely what any particular entity wants, let’s yet find something positive upon which to focus. I encourage us all to transcend perceived differences and to discern the good for our whole communities.

If we’re representing values, let’s show the love and uplift each other right now. May all be fully blessed.
