This week, when Notre Dame in Paris and African American churches in America burned, when the Arctic ice is disappearing, and when our democracy itself is under such horrific attack, I want to associate myself with Ms. Rich’s words.
Natural Resources, 1977:
My heart is moved by all I cannot save:
so much has been destroyed
I have to cast my lot with those
who age after age, perversely,
with no extraordinary power,
reconstitute the world.
