Reconstitute the World

Earth from space, public domain.

I am grateful for people who act and care in large ways and in small ways. I am grateful for people who live fully and freely as themselves and make the world better in ways that only they can.

It matters. You matter.

“…My heart is moved by all I cannot save:
so much has been destroyed

I have to cast my lot with those
who age after age, perversely,

with no extraordinary power,
reconstitute the world.”

-Adrienne Rich
