Journalist Rebecca Ruiz makes her Case for Optimism
February 13, 2018
I try not to take much for granted. I'm a lapsed Catholic, but one of the words I heard time and again as a child—and that still resonates today — is: blessing. There is a tradition in my family of giving thanks for what we have, even if it seems paltry compared to what we desire. So, it took me awhile to find the answer to this question when I first read it. As I began reflecting on the time that's elapsed since 2016, however, I realized I had taken for granted the number of people willing to call injustice by its name and fight for dignity and equality for the most vulnerable among us.
