Consider this response:
I may not agree with your opinion. I will agree that you have the right to speak. You have different experiences than I do. When I listen, I can and will learn. I still might not agree with your opinion. I will always do my best to honor your opinion. AND I will always consider you a dear friend. Your heart is in the right place. We all need to feel heard.
How often do we just need someone to listen to us?
Remember people count.
Dance with Democrats.
Dance with Republicans.
Dance with Independents.
And if you can’t dance physically,
dance with your eyes, your heart,
and your kind loving spirit.
Creating a kinder world through writing, music and
the power of Encouragement
