Words to heal us

Could someone with money and influence please find a way to engrave, largely and deeply, on some prominent public place, these words, drawn from Joyce McMillan’s wonderful article (Perspective, 19 September).

“The healing of wounds caused by such major divisions begins with our ability, as human beings, to carry in our hearts some part of the other side of the argument – or some person on the other side of the argument – and not to let that bond go, or to slip into denial that is there.”

Wonderful.
