Discovering joy in unexpected places

Rebecca Solnit is a writer, historian and activist. In a conversation with Krista Tippett in 2016, they talked about her work giving voice to the untold histories of redemptive change in places like New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

“When all the ordinary divides and patterns are shattered, people step up to become their brother’s keepers. And that purposefulness and connectedness bring joy even amidst death, chaos, fear and loss.”

+ Rebecca Solnit, from the On Being Podcast episode ‘Falling Together.’

I wonder, where are we seeing this today?
