A Tale of Two Gifts (Christmas Letter + Extras)

One woman’s tears began to fall near our poll table. The other’s fell all over the feet of an extraordinary man. Only one of the women received the care she needed. And one of our volunteers got a gift he’ll never forget.

In my Christmas letter, A Tale of Two Gifts, I share these two true stories followed by a picture of my preschool son’s art. You’ll have to read the letter to find out why.

  1. First, I was moved by your Christmas letter.

    I don't want to change the subject too quickly, lest I sound like Adam, but here's the next thing: Somehow I was reminded of something I had just read. I believe you have thought a lot both about persuasion and about being authentic with the people you're trying to persuade, and I would like your opinion about something I saw on this page —


    — “It’s foolish to expect people to be morally persuaded of anything through reason alone. If you want to truly make a difference you must use emotion to trigger an empathy response within the subject. Anything less and most will simply look at a perfect argument and discard the conclusion, no matter its strength.”
