The George Washington University’s Media and Peacebuilding Project blog features Still Relishing Being Angry? Or Ready to Start Talking about an American Spirit 2.0?. Drafted by Divided Community Project Leaders Nancy Rogers and Grande Lum, the blog post reflects on the “challenge of starting a conversation on American spirit.” Grounded in their conflict resolution experience Rogers and Lum offer their thoughts on
- How a national spirit helps polarized people solve their problems.
- Potential ways to screen ideas for the American spirit for those with the power to ameliorate the current polarization.
- How one convenes and holds the conversations necessary.
