About this audiobook

Anything that alienates and divides us leaves us weak and exposed to disaster. If we know nothing else about a disaster event, we should know this: experiencing a disaster will almost certainly mean taking care of ourselves, our family and our neighbors, and relying on them to do the same for us. Our communal goodwill is our best plan for coming through. Simple human compassion is more essential to our national resilience and strength than most of us recognize.

With anecdotes and unexpected stories about growing up during the 60s and 70s in the diversity of Los Angeles and from her work in disaster recovery, Diane Burden Cox illustrates the importance of our relationships. If we want a resilient future, we need to recognize it rests on the strength of our interactions with one another. Resilience isn’t just one more thing to put on our national to-do list, it’s something we can actually enjoy and have fun cultivating together.

The title is totally misleading. This is just a bunch of family stories about growing up, along with a sales pitch about her company.
