Terry Tempest Williams on Democracy

Terry Tempest Williams on democracy

Tempest-Williams continues, “It is where we embrace our questions. Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinions? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, without giving up—ever—trusting our fellow citizens to join with us in our determined pursuit of a living democracy?" Contemplate, embrace, and share these questions. It’s also worth asking ourselves and one another “how” we live into these qualities.
