          We need to take a few steps back or through the woods and breathe. The period since the election has been one of loud yelling from all sides of the issues. Some quiet time, reflection, and a look at recent history in other nations offer hidden perspectives. This article from YES! magazine is a must-read view of what happened in Sweden and Norway, who went through their own periods of right wing instability and came through them as models for inclusive communities working to shape a world where everyone can flourish.

Read…Explore…Reflect…Learn…Share!
