Right now, I’m reading Barry Lopez’s latest book, Horizon. I am struck by its relevance to the present moment. Lopez’s quote continues:
If we remain fearful of human diversity, our potential to evolve into the very thing we most fear—to become our own fatal nemesis—only increases.Barry Lopez, Horizon, P. 46
My prayer for myself and for our nation is to remain open to each other. To avoid the traps of echo chambers and vilification. We must listen to stories that make us uncomfortable, then grieve, and then do better.
