“Circles create soothing space where even reticent people can realize that their voice is welcome.”  —Margaret Wheatley

We are responsible for each other. This is the meaning of community. We take seriously the idealistic notion that our future is dependent on each of us and if one of us is not free, or valued, or participating in a full life, then these are not possible for any of us. How long we live and how often we are sick are determined by our personal behaviors, our social relationships, our physical environment and our income. We are the people who can change these things, individually and with our neighbors.
