The Door

A lot of my work these days involves fostering transformational change. With that in mind, I find this poem both inspirational and a warning. It also seems apropos given the current political climate.

"Prospective Immigrants Please Note"

Either you will
go through this dooror you will not go through If you go throughthere is always the riskof remembering your name Things look at you doublyand you must look backand let them happen If you do not go throughit is possibleto live worthily to maintain your attitudesto hold your positionto die bravely but much will blind youmuch will evade youat what cost who knows? The door itselfmakes no promisesIt is only a door. Adrienne Rich
