Lariat Letter: Take time to sit down with people, see beyond stereotypes

“Indeed, God will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” I (choose to) believe we could all agree that in an ideal world, there would be no war in the Middle East. In the prayers of those close to me, peace is a common topic. But these prayers, from many in the United States, focus on the people whom we know; namely, Israel.
