Activism At All Ages

….As an elder, the social activist is able to embrace all sides, understand a broader reality, and bring about change through relationship and communication. The fire of youth is not extinguished, it is merely used in different and usually more effective ways. It is integrated with wisdom developed through time and experience. There is no substitute for having experienced the issues yourself, for having had your own feet in the fire. There is great value in mixing passion with compassion. We desperately need the wisdom and guidance of our elders if change is to have lasting value….
November 2005 – Activism At All Ages, President’s Letter, Larry Geller
