July has been brutal for those of us in the United States, and for many around the world, who experienced confusing, senseless tragedy. We pushed back our regular programming this week to hold space with those hurting. In this episode, we highlight several folks using their creativity, artistic talent and innovative spirits to build something beautiful in their community. Tune in for a brief high five for those making beauty not war.
In this mini-episode we give virtual high fives to several folks who are building beauty and hope. We are calling out these points of light during these heavy days. We salute the several folks across the USA building beauty.
