hope… from farmers to health care to divestment to creative recycling

Reading the news last week about the fires and droughts and floods – due to human-caused climate change – and the persistence deliberate ignorance on behalf of the press, I felt quite sad.  And sadness alone does not allow for hope.  And all I felt was sad — with some anger directed at my own species.

Today, even amidst the commemoration of the murder of the great Ghassan Kanafani 40 years ago today… even amidst the ongoing ravages of climate change … amidst the news of racism…  Today, reading the news, I found glimmers of hope again. Resistance. Organizing.

Here is some of that news (there is much more)

The struggle for justice continues – in small corners around the world, and in our steadfastness

Out of love. Out of beauty. For hope.
