Celebrating the Community Builders

This may feel like a reach--stay with me. Check out this TED talk presentation of spoken word poetry.

The connection to community building? Check out that first poem. Listen to the three steps. Realize that the tenacity you see here is the same as what drives you--that person who can see a better community, who can see the power of connection, who can see the inefficient gaps between silos that we are working to bridge.

Enjoy, and honor the work you do.

Click on this link. Listen to Sarah Kay's "If I should have a daughter" ... with it's own meaning and more applied to your work.

And don't stop after her first poem.  Keep listening.  Check out the three steps, and her way of walking through life. Not unlike a number of amazing community building leaders we have the honor of working for....
