What conversations can—and should—we be having around the Kavanaugh ordeal?
What has proven most worrisome to you about those proceedings? What questions or issues do we need to reflect on as a country? What is there to be learned?
Openly, respectfully, safely conversing about political issues has become almost impossible. From the start, our guiding question for this platform has been: What is possible when we ponder together? And so, what is possible when we ponder these hard topics together? Can we make space for someone with an opposing view? Can we consider something anew? Can we develop a heightened understanding that will enable us to move forward with more wisdom, more clarity, more unity?
*Note: Ponder Effect is a sacred space governed by the principle of respect. Our anonymity is not, and never has been, a barricade from which to hurl verbal attacks. It is, rather, a conscientious effort to shift from me, me, me to we. Within this world, within this collective, we are all individuals with different experiences, perspectives and stories, united by a shared humanity. What is beautiful here is the willingness to engage with ourselves and with one another on questions that challenge us.
