One of the most difficult challenges to face is bringing opposing groups together to find compromise.
An entertaining and informative documentary, A River Between Us, sheds light on a remarkable display of leadership and compromise for a greater good. Some conflicts can be solved with simple changes or explanations, but many conflicts we deal with are a result of longstanding beliefs and livelihoods, with origins older than the actual conflict we are working on.
The process of compromise is a delicate one that must show empathy for all viewpoints, no matter how different they may seem. In A River Between Us, it shows us that, “To heal a river, we must first heal a people.” This documentary is a guide on how to solve the seemingly unsolvable conflicts around us, told by the people of the Klammath Basin who are living it.
Anyone can find or create conflict. Leaders seek and create solutions.
