The holiday season in full swing!
Twinkling lights, tasty treats, hustle and bustle, family and friends.
There are many reasons for us to spend time with
the ones we love at this time of year.
Dinners, parties, brunches, gift exchanges, concerts, sporting events...
These gatherings are warm and merry and delightful
How do we deal with THOSE family members?
You know the ones.
The ones who think differently than we do.
The ones who vote differently than we do.
The ones who think they know best.
In an effort to keep the peace,
we often avoid talking about what matters to us most.
Maybe it's time to try something new.
Maybe instead of ignoring the differences,
we should look for an opportunity to bridge the divide.
This holiday season, try looking at THOSE relatives with PURPLE vision!
What can we find in common?
How can we make connections?
What are our Purple Points?
Try out the Purple Points Protocol with your family and see what happens.
Maybe this year, while we are giving gifts to each other,
we can give the gift of common ground to our country.
We wish you a joyful and purple holiday season!

"Meet in the Middle" is a Purple Living Room campaign encouraging people from across the political spectrum to meet together each week in order to find common ground. Each middle of the week (WEDNESDAY!) we'll post an update on Purple Living Room Project activities. Share YOUR progress on our Facebook group page or in the comments here. Our goal?
