This was an invitation to read, reflect, pause and come together in community.

On March 30, the Community Education Department at Arapahoe Community College hosted a book discussion on Thomas Friedman’s latest book titled Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations. Here’s a quote from the book jacket that drew me in to read more. “We all sense it—something big is going on. You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can’t miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once—and it is dizzying.”

“When you press the pause button on a machine, it stops. But when you press the pause button on human beings they start.” -Dov Seidman
