Embracing Injustice

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth. … In too many places, the opposite of poverty is justice.”

-Bryan Stevenson

I am grateful to Ellen Parker of Project Bread for passing this video along to us.  I find deep resonance with the messages that “identity is powerful” and that we need to balance our enthusiasm for design, technology, and creativity with an embrace of suffering and injustice.  And how about the invitation to see everyone as more than the worst thing that they have done?  Do yourself a favor and watch this important and inspiring talk.  Thank you, Mr. Stevenson.
