We Need to Use Our Imaginations in New Ways

Grace dictated the following statement for attendees of the "With/Out - ¿Borders?" Conference in Kalamazoo, MI (September 25-28, 2014):

I feel I am the spokesperson for a new international movement to redesign our cities on the basis of new work and culture. I knew that my life was important but never knew how important it was until it was coming to its end and I could see so much movement among young people especially.

Our young people are a generation that can remake the world. We are more aware of the changes happening these days than any previous generation, but we really need to discuss them more. And we need to accept the challenges before us.

We are so fortunate to be living now because the challenges are so many and we need to use our imaginations in new ways.
