Photo by @amivitale. Meet Molly, my trusty companion in Montana's Centennial Valley. Here, people seem to measure worth by how comfortable you are around animals and they are around you. I have seen young toddlers on horseback nestled between mother and mane. By two, they are nuzzling calves. Children learn to throw a rope before they can talk. It is a place where people are shaped by the land itself and they in turn help shape the land. I feel so lucky to call this place home. I hope we can all use this moment to reflect and reimagine a different way forward, where we focus on building a universal trust and we reforge vital connections to each other, in our communities and with the earth.
