ARTICLE WRITTEN FOR ASKMEN.COM

 

Back in the not so distant past, I remember watching the O.J. Simpson murder trial with some of my college friends and our discussions became heated.

We felt energized and empowered to believe what we believed while also empathizing with those who felt differently. I learned from my friends, they learned from me, and the issues were spoken about thoughtfully. It was a clichéd win-win situation.
