I named this blog not as a reflection of our current reality – not of any prior reality, either – but out of the sincere and heartfelt notion that we can change our minds in order to change the world. We cannot all do it at once, and we cannot do it across the board, and we always have to work harder to understand what compels people to move toward violence, isolation, separation and conflict. We have to be kind. We have to cultivate compassion.
We also have to hope, and believe that where we live can be a place of peace.
