Crow Encouragement: Day 4
Think politics is a dirty word?
Think again. This quote is from Parker Palmer's blog at On Being, a
website of thoughtful heart and brain food. Palmer begins by quoting a
poem, then launches into his thoughts:
“Though much of our
political discourse is toxic, “politics” itself is not a dirty word.
It’s the ancient and honorable effort to come together across our
differences and create a community in which the weak as well as the
strong flourish, love and power collaborate, and justice and mercy have their day.
Yes, that’s a vision of politics that will never be fully achieved. But
every time someone abandons that vision and turns to cynicism,
democracy suffers one more wound in the death of a thousand cuts.”
