IN HUMAN TERMS, America is one great big teenager. Egocentric, immortal, loud, proud, irreverent, and obsessively casual, we have spent an excessive amount of time taking selfies, trying to figure out who we are.
Today, our mission is to survive America's angsty and rebellious teen years without crashing the car, burning down the house, or destroying our reputation. It's time to define who we want to be as an adult nation, moving from a world of navel-gazing and mistrust toward mental, emotional, and spiritual adulthood. Toddlers make declarations of independence, and teens live them out. But adults find love, meaning, and connection through Declarations of Interdependence.
Use this book as a personal or group workbook, using the READ3 framework to refine your personal manifesto — your own Declarations of Interdependence for yourself, your family, and your community.
"In America Becoming, Lisa Uhrik catalyzes important conversations as she endeavors to make sense of turbulent times. Uhrik draws insightful parallels between our collective and individual needs for connection and collaboration. She offers a roadmap to navigate an uncertain but promising future. Highly recommended."
