Cynthia talks about wearing all kinds of lenses that give us a different perspective on the world around us. Some of those lenses are dividing us and we need to get rid of them. Are we even aware of how those lenses are creating our opinions? It is very important to be able to talk and understand each other, especially now when Election Day is near. It is time to re-check some of our lenses and try to talk to people we could not talk to before.
