The nature of the struggle by Fay Honey Knopp

“The struggle for most of us has never been whether to continue or give up, but rather: how to lead a life of integrity with the fewest of contradictions in a culture that often devalues, inhibits, negates, or co-opts the principles we support; how to stay rooted in the spiritual while actively pursuing justice, while being oppositional and confrontational, while being outraged, while all the time trying to reduce the pain in pain-filled people and a pain-filled society. Oftentimes I tell myself that may be my only mission: to reduce pain, and not increase it.”
