This week, the world watched and waited with baited breath while a valiant team of divers worked together to rescue twelve young soccer players and their coach stuck in a cave in Thailand.
We all watched together while news trickled in about the amazing rescue operation.
We all mourned together the loss of the brave diver, Saman Kunan, who lost his life in the heroic effort to save the children.
We all cheered with delight together when the news broke that all of the boys were all safely out of the cave.
During the process, the Thai Navy Seals ended their twitter updates with the phrase, "HOOYAH!" It became a rallying cry for the rescue effort. You can read more about "hooyah" in this Guardian article.
The hashtag #hooyah is filled with joyful images and tributes to the rescue team that worked so hard together to bring the boys home.
Can we harness that "Hooyah" spirit?
We have so much work to accomplish together.
Let's get going...
"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.
