Cornel West - Being A Force For Social Good

''We all got a lot of work to do.'' ''How do you come to terms with the quest for truth and goodness and beauty in such a way that you can engage in disagreement and still mediate it with respect. But, recognize that much is at stake. It is not a game. It is not a puzzle. We are talking about the future.'' Don't ''loose sight of the preciousness and pricelessness of each and every one of us.''
