Age of Miracles

Williamson, Marianne
April 2008
Personal Excellence Essentials;Apr2008, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p1
The author shares insights on the significance of embracing midlife. She advises middle-aged people to seek the tools they need to accept their life and truly live it as they know it was meant to live. She believes that the citizens of the U.S. need to humble themselves and ask for forgiveness for the things they have done wrong, such as for their greed and imperialistic ways. The author is hoping that the U.S. political leadership will have enough faith in the Americans to speak to their depth.
