Image Quotes about Understand




Josh Sonnenfeld  - We do not understand why we, who engage in peaceful protests, are considered to be 'credible threats.' Such terminology is effectively calling us terrorists. The initial reaction is to wonder how peaceful protesters can be considered 'credible threats.' However, it is also important to consider that the Pentagon may view us as a threat to military recruitment, and therefore, some sort of threat to the country. Of course, by that flawed logic, since the majority of Americans are opposed to the war, the Pentagon can see most Americans as a 'threat to the country'.

Joy Austin  - I think it's a really wonderful way of looking at leadership development. What we're saying is, if you understand the broad issues that make up the life of the city, if you understand its history, if you understand its architecture and its neighborhood and its place, if you understand some of the ethical dilemmas that leaders must face as they make different choices about a city, and if you can articulate that in some kind of a creative process, then you are prepared to take an active role in decisions and choices that affect your life as well as the city's.
