The mantra of the day seems to be "No more..." Whether one is listening to news of local, state, national or international concerns, one hears "No more...."
I suggest a more useful approach would be to stress "Yes, more..." All of us live here, at this time, and together and we would benefit from a realization of this fact. What does one want more of? What do others want more of? How do we reconcile the wishes of each for more?
An emphasis on accomplishing positive programs using the "Yes, more..." approach could be more effective than a continuation of negative emphases on issues.
