It doesn’t have to be hard. I love to read, so I have been reading books that usher me into other times and places – times and places told from points of view different from mine. For you, it could be traveling to see monuments, libraries, or exhibits that offer more complete insight into our country’s history. Or, maybe you are a movie buff or TV person. There are so many great shows and movies that offer us a glimpse into other cultures and histories. And, of course, talking with people who are not like us is always a great way to build common memory. As they help us add to our understanding, we affirm their experience. d. And imagine what it could mean for our country if we discovered and held onto more common ground.
