The Invitation of Life and Deciding How to Respond
Parham, William D.
Counseling Psychologist, v36 n1 p135-147 2008
Local, national, and global events that dominate today's media (e.g., war in Iraq, genocide in Darfur, historical lack of confidence in national political leadership, Katrina/Rita aftermath, etc.) represent open and ever-present personal invitations to "wake up" to the complex challenges that increasingly define communities across dimensions of culture, race, ethnicity, social economic status, religious affiliation, and other parameters of multiculturalism. Related, these invitations speak to the urgent need for strong and sustained advocacy for social change and social justice. Deciding how, when, or if to respond to life's invitations is a matter of choice to which the readership is hereby also invited to examine.
