Think of these metronomes as human beings.  They all have a different beat, yet they come into harmony once put on a platform that moves.  The platform we need is called:  

Common Sense...            and it rocks!

It's time to rediscover our connection to each other.  We can start with a simple conversation.  What is it that we have in common?  It's a conversation that could be anywhere or everywhere.  How would you find this conversation and what are the ground rules?  

There are many organizations doing a lot of good work in the world but there is no one place that people can gather for a conversation, a sane conversation about what we have in common.  Maybe that place is anywhere.  Anywhere you see the common sense logo.

Why not start your own conversation, at Starbucks, a park, or at the beach?  Wherever you are, grab a friend, or meet some new people, let's talk about it.

No agenda, just a few people willing to look at what they have in common. Whatever is giving us life, beating our hearts, breathing our breath... its the same in all of us.  We all have the same senses. That is a beginning.  By using some simple guidelines we can start a conversation anywhere, anytime, with any one… about what we have in common… which will unite us… as we re-claim, and start using the… ‘Common Sense’ we were born with!
