The things I fear—deprivation and violence borne of the impact of climate change, peak oil, and foreign debt on a society that has flown so high and has so far to fall—the deprivation and violence I fear are the daily reality for billions of people in this world. This isn’t about guilt, it’s about perspective. Some of those people are walking in love. I can do the same, starting today, come what may.

My father used to tell me frequently that I lacked perspective. He was right.
