You cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it,
unless you see yourself as belonging to it 
and responsible for changing it.  -Grace Lee Boggs

Daily Practice:
 Belonging begins in our communities. It begins with connecting with strangers.  Sometimes it is easier to fret about the big things; but to affect them we must be growing power locally. Today watch what you could do if you took the extra time?  Is there a community meeting?  A homeless shelter?A community garden? It begins with learning what are the local issues that touch those who have less?  It begins with knowing you belong here and you have a responsibility to enriching your community. Let us know what that looks like for you. You too could be as shiny and joyous as Grace Lee Boggs.
