#139 – America’s Second Civil War, and What To Do About It
Peter Montoya is a best-selling author, entrepreneur, and leadership development guru. He now believes, “…there’s one essential ingredient for greatness: Unity.”
Peter warns America’s current civil war has consumed our identity, and it’s time to reclaim it. We must break our addiction to the misinformation, fake news, and selfish political agendas we digest on our various media platforms and other content sources.
Instead, let’s focus on unity. What do we have in-common, rather than what divides us? Peter’s new book, The Second Civil War: A citizen's guide to healing our fractured nation advises us how to return to our life’s purpose and who we really are, as we work together to regain our national pride
Unity is Peter’s focus. America can be one again. Let’s memorize the moments we came together as Americans to overcome the odds and learn to develop greater empathy for others.
Join Peter and David for this conversation about the future of the country.
