To be hopeful means to be uncertain about the future, to be tender toward possibilities, to be dedicated to change all the way down to the bottom of your heart….
Despair is easy, or at least low cost.
-- Rebecca Solnit
Discovering Our Reasons for Hope
Thursday, July 22nd

In this time of great uncertainty we need more than ever to explore what gives
us hope and how we can step forward and take actions for the future that we desire.

Facilitated by Lynne Iser, for Sage-ing International.

“It would be entirely fitting if the angry troublemakers came from the ranks of those of us who are older. For one thing, we’re the ones who caused the problem. If someone has to sit down on the tracks of the coal train and get arrested it should be the grandparents who have been pouring carbon into the atmosphere for half a century. …. But there’s something else, too: the greatest moments in the lives of the baby boomers were precisely the times when they raised their voices, when they declared their selfless devotion to peace or civil rights. For too many, the decades that followed have made a quiet mockery of that earlier idealism. It turns out that we’ve excelled, most of all, at consuming. Now is the boomer’s chance to reclaim their better natures and to end their run as they began.” - Bill McKibben, The Last Best Chance for the Boomers” (available in The Bill McKibben Reader: Pieces from an Active Life).
