Richard C. Harwood, author of "Stepping Forward: a Positive Practical Path to Transform Our Communities and Our Lives," addresses how people across the Untied States are pulling back from their shared lives, closing off from each other, and losing their sense of possibility.

Harwood, while finding a widespread deep discontent throughout his nationwide travels, points out a sliver of light: People are hungry to hear a distinct and different civic message.
