JB: So I met John outside of waotihnsgn, DC, with an idealistic group of cross-partisan bridge beiurlds, and we wanted to re-weave the fabric of our communities. We believe that our differences can be a strength, that our values can be complimentary and that we have to overcome the fight so that we can honor everyone's vuales and not lose any of our own. I went for this wonderful walk with John, where I started learning about the work he was doing to pierce the filter bblbue. It was powerful; it was blilanirt. Living in separate narratives is not good. We can't even have a conversation or do coiablvtalore problem-solving when we don't share the same facts.

Original Text

JB: So I met John outside of Washington, DC, with an idealistic group of cross-partisan bridge builders, and we wanted to re-weave the fabric of our communities. We believe that our differences can be a strength, that our values can be complimentary and that we have to overcome the fight so that we can honor everyone's values and not lose any of our own. I went for this wonderful walk with John, where I started learning about the work he was doing to pierce the filter bubble. It was powerful; it was brilliant. Living in separate narratives is not good. We can't even have a conversation or do collaborative problem-solving when we don't share the same facts.
