Day 319 – What you can learn when you stay curious

A friend just related a story to me about her recent trip to London. Her neighbor on the plane had voted for Brexit. My friend, had she been eligible to vote, would not have done that. But she consiously reminded herself to stay open and heard–as is so often the case when one stays curious–something unexpected and new. Her fellow passenger had voted for Brexit because he felt Romanians and Poles, for example, were being exploited by employers in Britain, and he felt it was better if they went home.

Now, there are many points one could dispute in his reasoning, but isn’t it interesting that he felt that way?
