I think you've got a great point. In practice it's much harder to just be rather than try to convince people of something with a good argument. I failed miserably to convince my conservative evangelical Christian parents to get vaccinated--just like I failed to convince them not to vote for Donald Trump again. It's hard to just be when their decisions negatively impact my life, but I think I'm going to have to try it. All the best as the spring semester wraps up.
