Charity is commendable; everyone should be charitable. But justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to be charitable, people still don’t go hungry, unschooled, or sick without care.

television journalist and social commentator
I am always shocked when people I love have remarkably different political views than I do. All evening, I contemplated the issue. How can we, when we are diametrically opposed in our opinions, maintain a connection?
What I view as stewardship of the planet, they view as taking away our freedom. What I view as taking away our civil rights, they see as protection from terrorism. How can we work this out?
All I know is that this is a challenge for me. I must learn to love in spite of our differences of opinion. I must learn to stay connected without giving myself away or letting go of my opinions.
Any suggestions for how to do that?
