This should be required reading for every public servant in government. Most especially for the executive branches. I hope that everyone that reads this book will take action, even small actions, to help heal this country. Get involved in local government and take part or get involved in a movement you feel passionate about. Educate yourself on the issues and that means don't just read Twitter or Facebook posts go read the actual legislation that is being proposed and ask questions if you don't understand. Make time every week educate yourself and be informed. Above all start listening to every side even if it is uncomfortable and consider their points and work on a compromised solution. John Dingell you will be missed and thank you for all your service in trying to create a better world for everyone.
