In my interview with four-time Oscar nominated actress Julianne Moore she was quite candid about her feelings with regards the current political climate. She says that it’s “most disappointing how partisan it’s become.” She goes on the say that we are supposed to be the country of the UNITED STATES, greater than the sum of our parts, but that we have become divisive, with self-interest and special interests seeming to dominate. She says, “I’m really disgusted. I really feel kind of ashamed.” Julianne Moore suggests that leadership is not about making more noise but about electing people who will take care of us. She has just released a new children’s book, the third of a series. It is called Freckleface Strawberry: Best Friends Forever. Themes of inclusion and self-acceptance are paramount.
