A Matter of Inclusion

by Chad Norman

Appealing to the Good is Us, Chad Norman writes poignantly and lyrically about the human journey, punctuated by border crossings, walls and barb-wire fences, racism, and intolerance based on one's physical looks, religion, gender, language, and geographic dis/location. In these deeply moving poems, the author reminds us that not only are we each other's keeper, but also stewards of the planet. Thus, the care of each other and the planet go hand in hand. These poems are warnings, prophecies, and elegies, but also a strong belief in the goodness of each one of us, and a gentle coaxing into performing right action. This is the only way we will be able to pull ourselves from the brink. Norman offers a blueprint for right action: love, compassion, fortitude, and courage. Read these poems then as meditations of hope for our collective future and evolution.
