The Importance of Values in Society, Politics and Ourselves

Values are so important in every aspect of our lives. As the Republican and Democratic conventions draw to a close, most Americans say that they want to support a candidate who shares their values. In the wider world, it is possible to see the conflicts that we are facing as a clash of values. Even getting the most from life after 60 relies, in part, in cultivating positive values in ourselves. Join us as we discuss the economic crisis in Venezuela, the latest from the Democratic convention, a good news story about an elephant being freed from chains after 30 years and much more! Oh, and today is Milk Chocolate Day, so, why not treat yourself to a little something special? Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat!
