Each of us is responsible for what happens on this earth.
We are each absolutely essential, each totally irreplaceable.
Each of us is the swing vote in the bitter election battle now being waged
between our best and our worst possibilities.”
-Leonard Peltier, Activist
You thought the presidential election was tough? How about the struggle between who we are and who we are meant to be? No holds barred. No prisoners taken. No tweets deleted.
This moral battle is at the heart of all the religions of the world, but it is also evident in every novel I’ve ever read — and written.
I see this eternal wrestling match unfolding every day of my own life as I make decisions that take me down the path of either becoming my best self or a lesser version. Those critical decisions are my own, but without those around me to challenge and comfort me, how can I decide?
Each of us has the swing vote waiting to be cast. Which way will we go?
