Though I am a conservative, I know better than to get all my news from any one source, with any one point of view. While living in Europe, I would often read the BBC or Irish news because they did not have the slant of American news writers. The news simply read as it happened without propaganda. I enjoyed talking to the few local nationals with whom I had relationships in the community. Hearing about how our countries and economies are connected and how each leader impacts world events fascinated me. Those are not the stories you see and hear when you turn on the news.
I may not be the most up-to-date mom on the block, but I am a very willing to learn mom. I am willing to set aside past prejudices and search for facts, even if they are contrary to my own opinions, even though that hurts sometimes. I will never compromise the truth, but I will always listen to and look at every side of a story before forming an opinion. Will you join me in my efforts to seek truth in this crazy world?
