What does it take to have ears to hear? The events that have transpired over the last number of weeks has caused a variety of reaction. Most of our response is based on the way we see these events.

So having ears to hear requires that we take time to listen to the stories of those who are different than us. Join us for part 2 of a 2 part conversation with Melayne Shankel, Ian Bramble and Carl Waldron that helps to shed some light on experiences that may be different than our own.
