pulled from history to give insight into what is happening today.
I sometimes think that life has gone to hell in a handbasket, but then I remember that’s what my Dad said in 1960. He was a marine who fought in WW II. It may be that every generation hopes there will be love, joy, and peace on earth in their lifetime and get frustrated as they get older when that reality doesn’t manifest.
Read this book at your own peril. Your eyes will open, you’ll shake your head, and wonder if, in some distant future, we’ll get it right. Did you know that Oppenheimer’s brother started the Exploratorium in San Francisco? He said, “I think a lot of people have given up trying to comprehend things, and when they give up on the physical world, they give up on the social and political world as well.” We must keep envisioning what matters most and how to make choices in the midst of tense conversations to speak the truth even when it’s hard to do.
This book makes you think. The authors remind us that we may not have the power to change the world, but we do have power in how we think, speak, and act.
