Summary, etc.:
How doe we bring people together when our society is breaking apart? What will it take to bridge our divides, overcome mistrust, and restore our belief that we can get things done together as Americans? How do we bring out the best in us? In Stepping Forward, Richard C. Harwood gives us a new and inspiring blueprint to rediscover what we share in common and actively build upon it. As a trusted civic voice, he argues that to get the country moving in the right direction, these efforts must start in our local communities.
Harwood shows up how we can reach within and beyond ourselves to address our shared challenges and create more purpose and meaning in our lives by--
Being a part of something larger than ourselves and truly making a difference in our communities
Refocusing on the desire for good in each other
Unleashing a greater sense of shared responsibility
Finding the courage and humility to take such a path
Americans are yearning for answers to the country's rampant polarization, hate speech, and gridlock. Stepping Forward shows us how to channel our frustrations, energies, and aspirations to get on a more hopeful path.
