    Selma and the struggle for civil rights
    "Our lives are not fully lived if we're not willing to die for those we love, for what we believe." Martin Luther King Jr. might have added that there can be no justice, equality or freedom for any of us, unless everyone can claim those things as their birthright. If some are oppressed, then we are all oppressed. Or so we would know if we were not so often blinded by our instinct to separate ourselves from “the other.”

  • Rocking religion with my mega-contemporary mom

    Rocking religion with my mega-contemporary mom

  • Gearing down in an age of speed

    Gearing down in an age of speed
    In the modern world, most of us live highly specialized lives. We generally assume that it is more efficient to trade our time for pay and then to pay other people for their time rather than doing things like growing food and making clothes ourselves.
