It would seem to be an easy thing to talk about the good things that are happening, but many times, it is a struggle. Facing the complexities of a world in conflict, it is very easy to be dragged into negative thinking and fear, and think that it is worthless to pursue good. Good, however has to be a choice – it is the tough sacrificial choice, and the one that must be made if we are to see any change in our communities.
I start this episode with the epic poem, Still I Rise by none other than Maya Angelou, broadcast May 28 2014 on NPR radio. I think it so encapsulates the challenge and struggle that we must take. Knock me down, hate me, talk about me, kill me with your words, and yet I will rise, with Good.
