The Power and Pain of Perseverance
"Winners Never Quit" at least that is the message of our culture.  Yet is there a time to stop?  And how do we know when perseverance becomes more harmful than helpful?  This mash up of The American Dream, How to be a Hero, What it means to be an adult, and the importance of believing in yourself is a boon and a burden.  Come and explore with us how these concepts impact us personally and culturally.  What does it mean to quit?

Transition Towns: Many people, young and old, are concerned about our rapidly changing climate, but feel powerless to do anything about it. They know our overuse of fossil fuels is a factor, but what are our options? Transition is a global, grassroots, citizen-led movement in which people learn and work together to take personal and community action on these pressing problems. In the process, communities are strengthened and people become more skillful, socially connected and prepared for the changes ahead.
