It Is Yours to Do

To decide is a movement towards a future.  Nobel Laureate Herbert Simon framed decisions as including value judgments about a desired future state and factual judgments about how to achieve that goal.

To say systems-change is to say love for something, the system, and its future, the change.  Orland Bishop asks, “For the love of what future do you give your will?”

Equity is the hosting of each other’s gift—unique contributions—to that future.  Fair access to and participation in the system.

The easy work is saying yes to love, for a future to which we give our will. The hard work is doing it every day, together. And this we know how to do.  It is time to do it.
