    In order to fulfill the requirements of this paper, I attended a ministry called Common Ground. Common Ground is an after-school mentoring program for underprivileged children in kindergarten through fifth grade that reside here in Waxahachie, Texas. This ministry has volunteers that help the children with their homework, includes a reading program to help the children become better readers and improve their comprehension skills, and allows the volunteers to spend one-on-one time with the children in order to share the love of Christ to them. While attending this ministry I noticed not only one, but several social needs. Needs such as love, belonging, security, and safety.

I choose security, because these children need something/someone that is constant in their lives and will not walk out on them. Finally I chose safety, because sometimes their home is not safe for them to be in or because their parents or siblings are not…

It is important to differentiate between ideals and common ground consensus. Ideals are what fuel individual's plans and desires, but in a democracy it should be common ground or reasonable concensus that should be applied for government policies. When common ground is reached, ironically ideally, the best of the different ideals…

    Common Ground American lawyer David Boies explains “Embrace a diversity of ideas. Embrace the fact that you can disagree with people and not be disagreeable. Embrace the fact that you can find common ground - if you disagree on nine out of 10 things, but can find common ground on that 10th, maybe you can make progress. If you can find common ground, you can accomplish great things.” Common ground can be difficult to achieve between parties if your ideas are very different, but you want the same…
