“You have heard of collateral damage. Now hear of collateral renewal. Every time we act in kindness, in mercy, in love: the impact of our actions radiates out to touch many more lives than the ones in our immediate vicinity. Others we do not know will be affected. The reverberations of our compassion will circle the world. Collateral renewal – healing rippling out, never ending."
-- Stephen Charleston

"I figured out over the years that public schools are some of the last public spaces in our country that have not been privatized. I figured out they are the epicenter of so many communities. I figured out they are the places we learn civil discourse and learn to get along with folks who aren’t like us. I figured out they are (small d) democratic institutions meant to make us better. We are better for them."

“For all its marvelous creativity, the human imagination often fails when turned to the future…. When Donald Trump is the subject, imagination falters further. Trump operates so far outside the normal bounds of human behavior — never mind normal political behavior — that it is difficult to accept what he may actually do, even when he declares his intentions openly.”
