Greg Tucker – Listening is a skill we need to cultivate to bridge the chasm of anger & bitterness

Greg Tucker, aka ‘the deplorable poet’, is a US Army Vet, a private investigator, a former Parole officer, and a poet–using this as a vehicle to learn about himself and express himself. His book of poetry is: Sour Cream and Vinegar: When Milk and Honey Isn’t Enough. Greg discusses how taking time to listen to each other is part of our path forward to have a civilized society. And part of creating this more harmonious society, starting with ourself, then with each individual, is to have an outlet such as his writing poetry. Some activity that will provide the time to be different and to consider different points of view.
