Here was the true great spirit, the divine thread connecting all human endeavor. If you can keep it, it is yours, your property. Slave or Continent. The American imperative.
The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead
This book is not easy to read, but the message is needed more today than ever. We are led by a man who degrades, insults, and mocks people who aren’t like him. This book reminded me of just how easy it is to do the wrong thing, particularly when we see others doing it. We should find a new spool and sew ourselves together with a new thread, one that binds us tightly in common good, respect, and prosperity.
