No One Is Exempt.

I am obligated to try to see the world through George Bush’s eyes, no matter how much I may disagree with him. That’s what empathy does – it calls us all to task, the conservative and the liberal, the powerful and the powerless, the oppressed and the oppressor. We are all shaken of our complacency. We are all forced beyond our limited vision.

No one is exempt from the call to find common ground.
