Comment: Are you prepared to "agree to disagree?"

(See in situ)

Are you prepared to "agree to disagree?"

People are always looking for how they disagree, and then they zero in and fight about what they disagree on. Go in prepared to say, "You know, i don't expect to agree on everything, and I doubt we will agree on (whatever topic) but I'd like to ask you about a topic I bet we agree on. How do you feel about....
Try the war, if you have to take a blind guess. But if you take a few minutes to listen first, you will probably see your opening.
And don't have too high of expectations. Even when we meet people we think are "awake" it is never long before they hit some area where we disagree - it is a funny thing about being individuals, we all come with individual opinions.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
