"The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. And once you've seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There is no innocence. Either way, you're accountable."
— Arundhati Roy
This is great! Glad you posted it.
Excellent!! I like how it tells a story.
As the parent of a soon to be 13 year old I agree with "What we think we do for the next generation." Your blog has taught me to appreciate "no" and push for not accepting compliance as a goal for adulthood. Thank you!
I'm 13 and that is totally true. It does feel like I'm Sisyphus sometimes.
