the essence of what I am writing here
I had started this blog with just my name, but it is not about me as a person, is about me as a thinking, observing participant in our world. Collective failure was going to be my first entry. And it seems like quite a depressing a notion. And I’ve been thinking, “will I simply be producing something to make people feel bad about themselves and their world?” now that is useless. But on this Saturday, the true meaning came to the surface of my thinking. Individual failure is an impossible sense, that I, as a person, has failed someone else, that I, as a teacher, has failed a student, that I, as a an American has failed the world at large. But in this paradigm, the failure is collective. Not one persons, nor a blame game. Rather if it is collective failure than we have a chance at collective redemption.
Collective redemption. I like the sound of that.
