Whether victim or perpetrator, part of being human is rolling up our sleeves and taking an active part in repairing harm.
Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody. ~ Jane Jacobs
Forgiveness has nothing to do with forgetting…A wounded person cannot–indeed, should not–think that a faded memory can provide an expiation of the past. To forgive, one must remember the past, put it into perspective, and move beyond it. Without remembrance, no wound can be transcended. ~ Beverly Flanagan
This is one of those moments when the barriers between who’s a regular person and who’s an activist need to break down. Capitalism has succeeded in convincing us that we’re not worth saving, that we can honestly look each other in the eye and say, ‘We can never do it.’ The job of any social-justice movement is to hold up another image of society and say, ‘We can be more.’ ~ Naomi Klein
