The glass can be half full at times but it could also be half empty.
Edward Roscoe Murrow, a broadcast journalist criticizing the McCarthyism era once said “Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices – just recognize them.”
“Generally speaking, the first nonviolent act is not fasting, but dialogue. The other side, the adversary, is recognized as a person, he is taken out of his anonymity and exists in his own right, for what he really is, a person. To engage someone in dialogue is to recognize him, have faith in him. At every step in the nonviolent struggle, at every level we try tirelessly to establish a dialogue, or re-establish it if it has broken down. When I say ‘the other side,’ that could be a group of persons or a government.” Hildegard Goos-Mayr
