We found this sign just a few hundred yards from the border in El Paso, TX. The whole saying is "El respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz", or "Respect for the rights of others is peace". The big conversations going on at the border seemed to circle around the central question, who gets what rights? 🌵🇺🇸 . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #bethechange #americanmovement #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #borderwall #thewall #immigration #texas #rights #derecho
And back to shore. It will take some time to process all the things written on my heart by the experiences of the past two months. It was, as ever, more than I knew I needed. Thanks for traveling with me, people in my phone! With love from a wanderer in Maryland. #veganflaneuse #lookforamerica #wandering #travelgram #justgo #optoutside #wanderlust #vegantravel #ocmd #oceancitymaryland #beachlife #beachinit #waves #oceanlovers #atlanticocean #easternshoremd #visitmaryland #exploremaryland #igersmd #seagull #travelbug #seenonmywalk #beachwalk #beachside #seashore #lookup #choosejoy #oceancitymd #delmarva
The trumpet rolls down the block and around the corner. Jazz in the air is a reminder that life is exciting, and that we are meant to dance through it. It takes a lot of courage to create your own perspective, and even more courage to put it out there. The people of NOLA are doing that just fine. . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #nola #jazz #expression #freedomofexpression
Got to break down some of our postcard opinions this morning, and had an interesting conversation with a barista who emphasized how complex New Orleans can be – in a city with so many different types of people and so much going on, some celebrate complexity and some enjoy simplicity. We love when they come together. . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #neworleans #nola #louisiana #cafedumonde
We got to speak with several people living along the border in Texas, and some of their thoughts and opinions were frankly surprising. In particular, one Mexican mother worried that guns and drugs were too available in America, and that US culture didn’t reflect the family values of her nation. How much does our perception of the world inform our opinions, and how can we make sure we’re working with the best information possible? #startingtheconversation . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #borderwall #border #mexico #elpaso
We collected a powerful post card this morning from a musician and a trumpet perched up on a street corner in New Orleans. His postcard reads, "If Unconditional Love Happened, I'm NOT scared. If Unconditional Love Happened, I Know that it will/is going to Drive out The Fear." It is a fantastic reminder to love across borders and across the aisle. . . . . . . . . #startingtheconversation #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #unitedstates #onenation #travel #travelamerica #neworleans #louisiana #nola #mardigras #jazz #trumpet #love #unconditionallove
It's so difficult (even impossible!) to understand other ways of life until you've seen them for yourself. What's crazier, the more we explore the US, the more we're seeing communities with completely different experiences of America right beneath our noses. Who lives in your backyard but sees a different world than you do? . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #newmexico #cubanewmexico #navajonation #horses
A postcard that we collected in Southern Utah reads, "If we don't prioritize education reform, I'm scared that the next generation of Americans won't be equipped for their world. If we can develop new technology responsibly, I'm hopeful that we could be more productive and connected than ever before!" Heading south towards El Paso. 🌵💫 Let us know if there are any questions that you think we should incorporate into our interviews with residents of the border town. . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica
Our dad always said that he loved driving in the southwest because you can stretch your eyes. We say that the realness of the people living out here stretches the soul. Southern Utah was blessed by melon stands manned by bright-eyed locals and unbelievable horchata from Tacos la Pasadita in Green River where we got to chat with other green chile enthusiasts. The heart of America has been showing itself, and we think it’s incredible. . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #utah #moab #arches #archesnationalpark #desert

“We need communication. We’ve all got our noses buried so deep in technology. I’m a farmer – all we do is breathe and eat dirt.” (Westley, CA) // Signs reading “Stop the Congress Created Dustbowl” pepper the highway between LA and San Francisco. Just over the hill from this roadside fruitstand sits the farm that a soft-spoken man in a straw hat’s great grandfather bought about 100 years ago. He rubbed a couple of pluots on his shirt before offering them to us. “I’m not trying to sell these to you. In fact now I insist you don’t buy ‘em. We don’t spray them or anything. I just like to get the dust off.” . . . . . #homeofthebrave #homeofthebrave2018 #letstalkusa #america #americandialogue #politics #politicalconversation #discussion #socialinnovation #hotb #bethechange #americanmovement #innovate #dialogue #brokendialogue #brokendialogueproblem #roadtrip #lookforamerica #cometogether #betterconversation #unitedstates #onenation #listenloudandclear #travel #travelamerica #usa
