“Fragility and Resilience”
There are many times when as individuals, or as a country, we have felt fragile. Times can be hard, and the strengths we rely upon can slip from our grasps. We can be knocked down. How do we get back up? How do we go on? What is resilience, and from where does it spring? Hugh Taft-Morales explores the important trait of resilience to survive health challenges, national crises, and ecological threats. At a time when many are feeling grave uncertainty about the future, maybe paradoxically it is in our very fragility that resilience is born.
Hugh Taft-Morales joined the Baltimore Ethical Society as its professional leader in 2010, the same year he was certified by the American Ethical Union as an Ethical Culture Leader. He also serves as Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia. His presence in Ethical Culture has been termed “invigorating.” Taft-Morales lives in Takoma Park, Maryland, with his wife Maureen, a Latin American Analyst with the Congressional Research Service, with whom he has three beloved children, Sean, Maya, and Justin.
