Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader
The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.
This week I'm reading: The Truths We Hold by Kamala Harris
Most mornings, my husband, Doug, wakes up before me and reads the news in bed. If I hear him making noises - a sigh, a groan, a gasp - I know what kind of day it's going to be.
On Page 56:
At the heart of the program was my belief in the power of redemption. Redemption is an age-old concept rooted in many religions. It is a concept that presupposes that we will all make mistakes, and for some, that mistake will rise to the level of being a crime. Yes, there must be consequences and accountability. But after that debt to society has been paid, is it not the sign of a civil society that we allow people to earn their way back?
I'm about half way through the book and so far I'm liking it, it's an insight into Kamala's life and how that plays a part in her politics. It's an easy read, not too bogged down in politics and policies, while still giving an overview of her politics and policies.
