Unity? What is it? How do we gain unity? President Biden made a call for unity at the inauguration. He said, “
“We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts — if we show a little tolerance and humility, and if we're willing to stand in the other person's shoes.”
But the politicians who talk the most about unity are often the worst role models—and it seems the more zealous their followers, the more damage that they tend to do.
However, there is one group of people who can teach us a great deal about how to unify. These people actively build bridges instead of call names. I will talk about them and draw lessons from their activities that can help us gain the unity we seek.
