Chris Hedges: A Recipe for an Emerging Dystopia moved me to tears. What brilliance Mr. Hedges offers to those of us attempting to keep our feelings of despair in balance, by nurturing an ever-growing amount of healing kindness to share, unconditionally, with others.
So glad you enjoyed his talk, Ruth.
Personally, I much preferred this one: https://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2017/12/01/chris-hedges-the-power-of-writing-as-resistance/ Have you watched it yet?
There were sections of this presentation I had heard before, however, I hadn’t heard the very moving sharing Hedges provided about his experiences while teaching in a New Jersey prison, and how touched he was, and is, as he recalls his students. I spent the four months of my student teaching course in NJ, 54 years ago. The school, in Camden, provided one jar of paste for the entire fourth grade class, which was to last from September to June! I understood Mr. Hedges emotional hesitation as he spoke of his student’s ‘telephone dialogue’ with his mother -a treasured creation- because my months as a student teacher, had a similar impact. Twin girls in the class arrived on alternate days, since they had only one pair of shoes and took turns wearing them. And then there was Levan, a young pupil who had been shunned by the teacher I was temporarily replacing. He had been left back, ridiculed and intimidated. He sat, in silence and dejection, in the back corner of the room, separated from his classmates. As I entered the room, initially, the teacher told me to “ignore Levan”, then she left. I didn’t ignore Levan; I encouraged him, as well as every other student in the class. I cried the day my student teaching ended, so enriching was the experience. Many years later, when I visited a well known bakery shop in Camden, I heard someone call my name, I turned and instantly recognized Levan, a grown man now; he approached me and said, “I want you to know I finished high school and I have a good job, thank you.” To this day, I hold that memory as a sacred blessing.
What a beautiful story, Ruth. When I graduated college I received a greeting card for congratulations and inside it said, “to be successful in life is to make a difference in a child’s life”. Truly, you have been successful and Levan and the many other students you taught proves this.
Have you read Hedges’ book, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt? One of the places he visits is Camden, NJ.
I haven’t read, “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt”, but I will.
Here’s a good interview with Hedges on the Moyers and Company show: https://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2012/07/20/moyers-and-company-chris-hedges-greeds-path-of-destruction/
