Our New Life

“I am convinced that our children pose the question whereby we must justify our power over their lives, or give it up. It seems tragically evident that we have to give it up: our power, our coercion of new life into old stories; we have to solicit and cultivate and respect major differences of behavior and habit and perspective as they emerge from our new life, our children.” ~June Jordan, “Old Stories, New Lives”
