Remembering this classroom brings home the power of how our national heart has been affected by recent events. I honestly believe there is no turning back to going into deep conversation about issues of mental illness, inappropriate gun laws, politicians running scared about re-election, and feeling our way into finding our common heart.
The price paid in Newtown is going to serve as a powerful enzyme in the sluggish system of creating ground level change in how we look at things, and how we act.There is ever so much change pending. I feel it in my bones. Each of us can contribute to this major course correction which we are KNOWING is called for now. We will do what we can, according to our own lights, and maybe even more importantly, we will be who we were born to be, no matter what we have to shed to do that.
What an important time this is. "And the children shall lead the way."
