It’s Time

In an essay published in The Nation in 2015, Toni Morrisson, the writer and Nobel Prize winner, wrote about how she felt during a time when the world seemed broken.1 She felt helpless, depressed, as though she was paralyzed.

In a conversation with a friend, Morrison realized that it is in these difficult moments, when “the world is bruised and bleeding,” that we have to take action. She understood that “there is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear.”

And right now, in our current difficult moment, we must listen to Toni Morrison’s wisdom and not remain silent. We must speak out, and we must take action, because that is how, in her words, “civilizations heal.”
