A few final quotes spoke to me
- "The goal of every adult among us is to face ourselves, our greatest enemy..." page 24
- "Bias is not a reasonable thing. It is emotional, conjured by those whose own life is rich with doubt and pain they have no idea what to do with, so they pass it on to those that society has deemed lesser beings. It is a kind of crazy social contract that the colonized have unconsciously agreed to." Page 61
- "Neither of them is culturally intact." (page 61) What an evocative phrase.
- "It takes courage for millions to swim against the tide and the full length of an entire river, to scale series after series of falls for creation, knowing that death waits. The gifts is not made for us but for the future. It is not a fight against anything or anyone but rather a fight for creation. We know creation itself is the only winner and we are satisfies, content with this knowledge." Page 63
