READ Anything We Love Can Be Saved

READ & DOWNLOAD Ë Anything We Love Can Be Saved READ Anything We Love Can Be Saved G with an autobiographical essay about the roots of her own activism Alice Walker then goes on to explore diverse public issues such as single parenthood freedom of the press civil rights and religion. Coming off the end of my service year and into a new city where I m trying to learn about and explore the community regain my bearings and focus in on meaningful local work and movements Anything We Love Can Be Saved was exactly the refreshment I needed I had picked it up for 99 cents at St Vinny s some time ago but didn t feel ready to pick it up until I was in a reflective place It is a collection of essays speeches and letters to influential people and organizations that covers themes of activism ancestry religion Black womanhood and the American South The book came out over 20 years ago so there were some moments that I had to acknowledge the gaps in my historical knowledge of the time for example she included a letter she wrote to President Bill Clinton declining an invitation to the White House and explaining her opposition to the Cuba embargo in addition to those already existing in my limited cultural perspective her letter to Essence magazine defending dreadlocks as a hairstyleMy favorite passage came at the end one that I felt summed up the book perfectly Walker reflects on a blue bowl a gift from her mother who near the end of her life gave away nearly all of her already few possessions Stored in the blue bowl were childhood memories the spirit of her mother and the knowledge of her mother s generosity and lack of attachment to possessions especially when they would bring others joyHow the book relates to my experience is in the title as well as explored by Walker s words in the pages With many themes the string that ties it all together is that activism is worthwhile and that it matters I think that is much of the same spirit that carried us through the tougher times of our work and the days that nothing seemed to go right It was a deep care for the communities that we were involved in and the validity of the work we were doing that helped us alongI would strongly recommend this book to all CTEPs anyone who is wrapping up their service year or rejuvenating before starting up another one Reading it was some very necessary reminding and refocusing time for me and I m sure it would be for any of us See if your library has a copy
