Who Are “We”?

The “we” of the people we call “ours” is more than a set of laws about citizenship. It is about the everyday lives of a diverse people, some struggling harder than others to make it in a country growing increasingly “meaner/leaner” under the guise of “tougher.” Seeing the world through the eyes of the other moves us beyond empathy for individuals to a more inclusive story about us as a collective “we.”
