About your comment on Wade and conservatives in general, my wife was the same way. She was a social and economic conservative when we first met (although I didn’t realize HOW conservative she was at first). As she has become more “worldly” – meeting more people and seeing them as human, her outlook has changed. I think she would classify herself as progressive and liberal at this point. She was a Kansas Republican who, at age 55, has completely changed her position and looks at conservatives now with a certain amount of disbelief.
I firmly believe you are right – the more people we meet that touch our lives, the more empathy we have for others.
