but it really is so important to find people who don’t lose patience with you or get angry if you’re being irrational or insecure or downright ridiculous, it is so so necessary to be treated with gentleness from loved ones and not to be made to feel like you’re irritating or a burden

This is what happens when the bonds of trust and respect that hold any community together fray. Nobody wants to see our streets look like a war zone. Not in America. We are better than that.

- Hillary Clinton, on Ferguson

I think this quote (I don’t know about the rest of the speech) misses the point. This is not an isolated incident. America has been “frayed” since it was born as far as race issues. We may have come a long way, but we’ve never gotten it right. We have a long way to go.

He said, ‘These are books, and you can take one home.’ And I’m like, ‘What’s the catch?’

And he explained to me there was no catch …

The books made the difference. By the time I was 15, I knew there was a world outside the camps. I believed I could find a place in it. And I did.

Storm Reyes. 

Storycorps today is a must, must, must-listen. Storm Reyes grew up in migrant labor camps, where she learned how to handle herself in a knife fight before she learned how to ride a bike. There weren’t any books in her life — they were too heavy for families that were always on the move.

When she was 12, a bookmobile came by the camp, and the staffer convinced a hesitant Reyes that she — yes, she — could take books home. She learned about volcanoes and dinosaurs, and came back for more books when she was through.”That started it,” she tells her son in their Storycorps interview — that was the spark that motivated her to seek a life outside the camps.

And when she grew up? She became a librarian.

Give it a listen. There’s no better way to end the week.

Libraries change lives.
