America’s History and Future

On July4, 1776, a ragtag group of colonists stood together and declared with one voice “We will stand alone as a country. We will unite in independence from England.” In 2020 (a year many spoke of as a time to see clearly with 20/20 vision) our nation shut down in isolation due to the global pandemic. During this time we learned many lessons, one being the weaknesses of independence and the need for recognizing and enhancing our interdependence.

Today, as we emerge from isolation, we will plum these thoughts and look at what our future can look like here in Humboldt and how we UUs are uniquely equipped to play a role in this transition to greater interdependence.
