Gain Strength from Our Differences

View photo album

All of us are very passionate about critical issues that impact those who we love and our communities. As we prepare for the upcoming election season and the campaigns that are designed to divide us, create acrimony, and further deepen political polarization, we need to take stock of how we get through this with self-care and respect for our fellow citizens. Arthur Brooks joined us to discuss his book, Love Your Enemies and his most recent work called Live a Better Happier Life. Through ancient wisdom and cutting-edge behavioral science, Brooks provided a roadmap to the prosperity that comes when we choose to love one another – gaining strength from our differences.
