American Values

Our goal is to create a welcoming space where people in the Gorge can come together to examine what it means to be an American. 

Our theme for the evening is called “Whole States”. This will be a non partisan experience. We discourage partisan discussions or confrontations. It is not about Democrats, Republicans and Independents. Rather it's about who we want to be as Americans. This is the question that each of us must ask ourselves: "Who do we truly want to be as a Nation, and consequently how do we want the rest of the world to view us?" We are at a point in our history where we are asked to redefine what it means to be an American. What values do we hold dear? What lessons do we want to teach our children about what it means to be an American citizen? We can agree that the vast majority of us want the same things. Let's not allow the political environment to push us further apart when what is called for is to find the similarities that actually unite us. Let us be the United States of America; people coming together who seek the best for all of us....."Liberty and Justice for All" is what most Americans want. 
We will have some goals for the evening. We will offer a 20 minute meditation which will allow us to take a deeper look inside as we examine our inner most values.
