Not From Around Here: What Unites Us, What Divides Us, and How We Can Move Forward

News outlets, historians, and sociologists can (and do) tell us all about the statistics, but they don’t (and can’t) tell us about what it’s really like in a given place. Thursday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Brandon O'Brien, author of the book, Not From Around Here, shares what he learned about himself, faith, and the people who make up America on his own journey through it.
