Today I begin my blog. I want to be a voice of reason, hope, challenge and encouragement for those who seek an America that reflects our founding principles that extend to ALL of us, not just some of us. I believe an honest dialog on the pressing issues of the day tempered by fair reasoning and an open mind to multiple points of view can result in best practices every time. I am a Democrat - but am not against Republicans. I am Black - but I value diversity and I practice inclusion. I am not always right - but strive to find truth no matter how difficult it may be. I'm guided by a basic principle that has worked for me most of my adult life. Namely, consider "both-and" vs. "either- or" as a practical approach and solution to problem solving and most often, both sides win!
