Seeds IX, 45

Seed: Unity

I had a strange introduction to politics, one I never would have expected. My sweetie bought me the DVDs of Aaron Sorkin’s, The West Wing. It was an hour-long television drama about a top team in the White House. Admittedly, Mr. Sorkin’s political bent matches my own quite liberal one, but that’s not what I got from the DVDs.

What I learned was how the process of politics works in Washington, D.C. It’s a fascinating, frustrating, valuable process. Learning about it has helped me get clear about what I value politically. It can be put pretty plainly in three words:

Unity, not uniformity.

I appreciate those whose ideas and opinions differ from mine, if only because they make me clearer about what my own are. What I want for our country is dialogue, interaction, a bigger solution than that of just one person, or one majority.

Not uniformity, unity.

Be serene,

Dr. Susan Corso
