"We realized that understanding and tolerance can lead to a productive conversation, and that was exactly what our culture was failing to do. Why is this so? We see it in our parents. We see it in our media. We see it in our leaders. Quite simply, this intolerance is ingrained in society and our heads from day one. The minds of young people, supposedly malleable, seemed to be reflecting the bad attitudes of our elders. We were just as stuck, fastened, and fixed in our ways as they were. We knew that this needed to change."
