“"When Elton (John) and I work on things, we want to invest out time, creativity and energy in things that hopefully bring the world closer together, not further apart. The movie's message essentially says it doesn't matter if you're a red or a blue. At the end of the day parents should love their children and want what's best for them. Elton and I try not be judgmental people. We are not advocates in the placard-carrying way. We just try to live our life by example."”
