“We are at a stage in human history … we’re headed now will be different because we have exhausted planetary space and human space for us to continue to look at things through material …(eyes-editor’s note). We need to face the way we used the world for our gains, pleasures, satisfactions. … And unless we want to live in terror for the rest of our lives, we need to change our view about acquiring things. We have the opportunity to take a great leap forward in these very challenging times. We need to change our institutions and ourselves… We need to launch our imaginations beyond the thinking of the past. We need to discern who we are and expand on our humanness and sacredness. That’s how we change the world, which happens because WE will be the change.”
Dr. Grace Lee Boggs, 93, a long-time Detroit political and labor activist, author, and philosopher.
