It is a privilege to put your political differences aside

It is no secret that our nation is deeply, corrosively divided. Many of us, including recent writers in this publication, have longed and called for unity, to bridge our divides and put aside partisanship.

To unite as a country and as a Duke community, we must probe deeper and understand that disagreeing about politics is not what divides us, nor will putting aside political differences be the solution.
