American History from the Perspective of Those Most Impacted
This week is a very loaded time in our history. Now we collectively wade through conflicting energies of family, gratitude, loneliness, grief and gluttony. May we root into gratitude for all we have, and pause to mourn what brought us here. For a full take on American History from the perspective of those most impacted (rather than the elite “winners” who generally write the books) please read “A People's History of the United States” by Howard Zinn. It reads more like a novel than a text book, and doesn’t shy away from the messier parts of our past. How can we build a better future if we dont't know where we’ve been? How can we heal from harm if we don’t acknowledge its there?
Please be in contact with ways you feel this organization can step up into social regeneration projects this next season and at our fall convergence. We need your hands, heart and mind to do the work.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, we look forward to seeing and hearing from you,
Julie and Shaelee
