To a call for kindness and humility in our political relations, one can only say amen. I agree with French, if we stay together as a nation, that is what it will take.
We don’t need a national divorce. We need a new basis of unity, and that ultimately will come by talking with one another.
We must have ideas on the table for what might now seem politically impossible but in a few years seem politically inevitable. Let us think in terms of mutuality and interdependence, how we will work together, rather than separation and how we will break apart.
