Great piece by friend and Buddhist Teacher Paul Bloom, published recently in The New Haven Register.
“It is important to recognize that concern doesn’t equal hatred — let’s start there. Concern about policies and differences of opinion are about democracy. We should all note that President Obama has welcomed the incoming president on a number of occasions, as we all should. In a November address to the nation, Obama also pointed to the importance of “a sense of unity; a sense of inclusion; a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law; and a respect for each other.”
