Every second Monday of the month, a group called Mix of Minds meets at Oak Park’s Main Library to discuss issues as diverse as the five kinds of Trump voters and Buddhism. The discussion this month was about an article that presented two tour guides, one Israeli, one Palestinian, who offered a new way to see the Holy Land. The consensus of the group was that this type of tour featuring separate points of view would be illuminating in many areas: For example, a tour of the South could have two guides, one to present how the Southern states treated African Americans and one to present the Northern point of view. Such tours do exist and Oak Parkers are encouraged to seek them out for down-to-earth enlightenment.
