American Dream = Beloved Community

At this critical time we need to re-imagine, envision, and live into an American Dream that affirms the dignity, worth, and potential of everyone.

In order to be the change we wish to see in the world, I believe we must stay awake, have an open mind and a good heart, organize ourselves to be resilient stewards, and work with others to be more self-reliant and advance the greater good.

We need to share and invest our time, talent, and resources in ways that leverage assets, bridge divisions, strengthen communities, revitalize the environment, protect our biodiversity, and build common ground to collaborate for the common good.

We need collaborative leadership from everyone to engage all communities to promote and grow stewardship ethics, sustainable vocations, culturally appropriate entrepreneurship, and good public policies to nurture the beloved community.
