In her essay assigned for the class, author Alice Walker uses the metaphor of contributing our “stones” toward the creation of an “edifice of hope”. What do you think Walker means by an “edifice of hope”, and why would it be important for us to contribute to it? What sorts of “stones” would you bring to add to the pile? For this option, be sure to refer to Walker’s essay in your own reflection.
