Looking at this, I keep thinking of one of my favorite sociologists, Tony Campolo and his conversation, “Friday’s here, but Sunday’s coming.”
I would like to believe there is merit to this. I think it will be up to us to decide and act in ways that build community – many small acts of listening, patience … better angels as it were. What do we want to see in the collective mirror a year from now? 2 years? 5 or 50 years? How do we get there? Certainly not by pretending we were once shiny and true, but facing ourselves and choosing – as best we can – to be part of the solution(s) and not the destruction of what we hold close.
