One Small Step from StoryCorps is a program that brings together people from opposite ends of the political spectrum for a personal conversation. Over this past year, WDET has been collecting conversations — and the results have been fascinating.
In this One Small Step conversation, Ann Bruttell (69) and Gretchen White (67) talk about their similar paths in life and how they diverged, moving away from home and how President Nixon and the Watergate scandal influenced their lives.
“We all have to have a tolerance. I think we’re just missing tolerance and compassion and understanding. I think that we need somebody — I don’t care what party — who’s a peacemaker.” — Ann Bruttell, One Small Step participant
