Metaphor of the Moment: Unity
July 8, 2016
The violence of the past week has shaken the nation. Multiple shootings across the country have shocked, saddened and angered many. But former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and author/activist Van Jones (former co-hosts of CrossFire) have released a video both discussing and demonstrating what we need to do when faced with tragedies like these. It’s hard to imagine two men who are more different in background, belief and perspectives, but they agree that we must come together as a nation. In the video (of a live feed), they discuss in a caring and intelligent way what we can do to build unity in our communities and in our country. You can view the discussion via RealPolitics or via Gingrich’s Facebook page.
