THE DOGGED TENACITY OF PEOPLE DOING THE ORDINARY.
Over the past month, we’ve had a lot of activity around immigration and refugees and I've been thinking a lot about Presidents. So I started reading what past American presidents have said about it. What guidance is there for us in the past?
While this episode is told through the words of some of the Presidents of our history, it’s really a story about leadership. Not the kind of leadership you read about on those inspirational posters in the meeting room at work. It’s about the dogged tenacity of people doing the ordinary. Signing the forms and staffing the offices, getting kids into schools and making sure the vans run on time every day.
These are people who persist in the delivery of human kindness in order to work our new American neighbors into the fabric of our communities.
Today’s thing, is President’s Day. This episode is titled “Everywhere at Once.”
