We need more people in the world who won’t give up on others, even when we are very hard to love. In the glorious words of American poet Mary Oliver:
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
Today’s newsletter draws inspiration from holiday stories—and the fact that all of us are the stuff of nonviolence.
