Lately, the outside temperatures have been cooling down. It’s time to enjoy the Fall weather! Come spend your time watching the Better Angels documentary to see how citizens across the country are turning down political heat.
The approximately hour-long documentary will be shown, again, in the MountainView Ballroom East on Wednesday, October 30, at 3 p.m. features highlights of Better Angels Red/Blue Workshop which was held in Ohio. The event took places in hopes to encourage respect for differences, rather than to advocate for any position on the right or left. Viewers who do watch conservative and liberal participants may arrive suspicious and somewhat hostile toward the other side but will leave with more understanding and affection.
Better Angels holds workshops across the country to bring people together and civility back to politics. Their mission is to have Americans see each other as friends, not enemies, no matter where they sit on the political spectrum. The organization’s name comes from Lincoln’s 1861 call to a divided nation to be touched by the “better angels of our nature.” What the citizens’ organization encourages and teaches is a better way of talking about politics.
