It was about bearing witness to its life.  (Bearing Witness Quotes) Like civil-rights protesters who sang rousing hymns as they were carried off to jail, Twitterers are bearing witness to what’s happening around them, and calling out into the darkness of cyberspace for confirmation.

But I can celebrate those journeys by bearing witness to them, by paying attention, and, perhaps most of all, by carrying on with my own growth and becoming. Now it dawns on me that the only way I can figure out what I’m meant to be doing is to try to understand who I’m meant to be... I will not waste this life, not one hour, not one minute. I will not take for granted the blessing of our being here... I will give thanks  (Bearing Witness Quotes) Every artist seems to me to have the job of bearing witness to the world we live in. To some extent I think of all of us as artists, because we have voices and we are each of us unique  (Bearing Witness Quotes) With each new book, the march of our national history takes a step forward.
