Historically, tyrants have sought selectively to eliminate firsthand knowledge when its sources lay outside their control. By silencing those with problematic firsthand experiences, they reduced the number of potential contradictions in their political and social designs, and so they felt safer.
–"The Naturalist" by Barry Lopez
Do we have the moral courage to step forward and openly question every law, person, and practice that denies justice toward nature?
Do we have the strength and will to continue in this American tradition of bearing witness to beauty and terror which is its own form of advocacy?
And do we have the imagination to rediscover an authentic patriotism that inspires empathy and reflection over pride and nationalism?
–"One Patriot" by Terry Tempest Williams
