SOCIAL JUSTICE, A LIMITED TIME OFFER

Is it possible to create a society where each and every person has access to the promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"? These were deemed to be "self-evident" by the founders of the United States of America, the country of my birth; however, in their primitive worldview, the founders certainly wouldn't and/or couldn't have predicted the present day. Many are homeless. Many are food insecure. We have a marginalized class of citizens (fundamental to the founders' design) that is ever-growing and increasingly marginalized. And the most dangerous place for children is school. There are innumerable calls to action. Which one(s) will you answer? And how will you sustain your energies in what appear to be never-ending challenges, a multitude of opportunities, and seemingly limited resources?

If you haven't already, I invite you to find a cause that advances equity and social justice. You don't need to "go big." Just find something that speaks to your heart. For those that are new to me, this is a site relaunch. To that end, I will be creating new content but this time with your help; so please share stories and/or links to your work. I would like to connect our far-reaching communities and share our collective efforts as a source of inspiration and encouragement.
