Americans of Conscience Checklist: Week of April 14, 2019

Small things, great love. On the surface, taking one small act might seem too small, even inconsequential. There are no easy solutions to the challenges assaulting our neighbors and our nation.

It is premature to decide that small steps are futile. We must give history a chance to be written through us.
