Food For Thought:
Why do people stop listening to each other?
In the wake of ubiquitous and gross injustices in #Ferguson #EricGarner #Gaza #Assange, I started to think about Communication.
Yesterday while on Twitter (I am a recluse), it struck me that people were not listening to each other. Interestingly, I stopped listening to many people with opposing views. Why? I have a blog called Failure to Listen. My entire career was dedicated to listening and caring about others. How did I get to a point of not listening?
