Hi there. This looks very, very interesting, but it’s made up almost entirely of images. I use a screen reader and can’t read this particular article. Would anyone be kind enough to write these out in plain text for me? I would be so, so grateful!

Best wishes,

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
