Sean started his professional career as a counselor and a social worker before joining the U.S. Air Force where he deployed with the Army to Mosul. After getting out of the Air Force, he went to work for the Army, where he has been since. He is also a Unitarian Universalist, which creates the dichotomy that at work he is seen as a liberal while at church he is seen as one of the conservatives. This has allowed him to see that we have more in common than we have that separates us.
Too many people profit from us remaining divided or hoping we are so overcome by despair. They do not want us to take action to fix the problems in our lives. We have lost control of the political discourse within the United States, and now we see those that disagree with us as enemies. But we agree upon more than our media and politicians would like to admit. Once we learn to see the other side as a potential ally, we can work together to fix the problems that we are facing.
Unlike other books, this one not only identifies a problem but also provides a plan of action to fix it. This book will help us see the humanity in people with different opinions. It will help us realize that we have more in common than what divides us. It will provide an outline for us to work together to heal the rift that separates us and what we can do to improve our situations.
