In today's New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof reminds us why he might be the best thinker out there on global issues. If you're a liberal, you might see yourself in there -- and maybe not like what you see. If you're a conservative, you also might see yourself in there -- and maybe take a harder look at where your beliefs are leading you. If you're a human, you might be encouraged that there are places where the two sides could meet; in fact, could philanthropy and service to our world be a healing spot for the liberal-conservative rift?
His piece is definitely worth a read and, more importantly, a think.
