When it comes to the values that are closest to our hearts, sometimes it can be hardest to share them with the people we care about most. Moral and ethical issues, and matters of conscience that are of crucial importance, can go unexplored in families or between lifelong friends because of a concern that strong feelings will result in conflict.
Oftentimes, what makes dialogue difficult is a lack of common experience around the issue at hand. Discussion of abstractions can lead to misunderstandings or frustration.
This is where viewing a Tribe of Heart documentary with your loved ones can make all the difference. The stories told in Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home
