A dear friend sent me this the other day. I read through it and thought it very beautiful. But I've read it again several times and it's much more than beautiful - it's powerful and relevant and seems to resonate strongly with our collective state of mind at the moment.
It's true that nothing is certain but change, so perhaps these moves and shifts that are coming thick and fast are inevitable. However, it doesn't mean we must get swept along by them; inevitability does not equal impotence. We are the makers of our own destinies and whatever is happening around us and to us, we are still lucky enough to live in a country where it should be possible to do something about it. For now. And now we must act to preserve that right.
