NOVEMBER 15TH 2018: SHE LEADS CHANGE

REFLECTING ON MONDAY’S SESSION ON RESILIENCE, THIS WEEK’S EPISODE OF ELIZABETH DAY’S HOW TO FAIL PODCAST WITH TARA WESTOVER (WHOSE MEMOIR “EDUCATED” RECOUNTS HER CHILDHOOD AS PART OF A MORMON SURVIVALIST COMMUNITY AND PATH TO MOVE AWAY FROM A DOCTRINE THAT SHUNNED PUBLIC SCHOOLING AND MODERN MEDICINE - A PATH THAT ULTIMATELY LED TO HER BECOMING ESTRANGED FROM HER PARENTS IN ORDER TO FOLLOW HER DESIRE TO LEARN AND FIND A PLACE IN THE WORLD), COULDN’T BE A MORE POWERFUL EXAMPLE OF THIS QUALITY. RESILIENCE OF FAITH, OF SPIRIT, OF COMPASSION. OF FORGIVENESS. OF UNDERSTANDING. OF COURAGE. OF LEARNING TO LIVE AGAIN. IF YOU HAVE 48 MINUTES, I'D ENCOURAGE YOU TO LISTEN TO HER TELL THIS INSPIRING STORY ABOUT THE FAILURES THAT MADE HER WHO SHE IS TODAY. I DEFY YOU NOT TO BE MOVED, ASTOUNDED AND HUMBLED. WHAT A WOMAN.
