Community of Goodness

with Larry Long & Tom Thibodeau

Mondays at 8:30AM

Larry Long is an American singer-songwriter who has made his life work the celebration of everyday heroes. He has written and performed hundreds of ballads celebrating community and history makers. Author and historian Studs Terkel called Long “a true American Troubadour.” When Pete Seeger was told that Larry was often referred to as the Pete Seeger of Minnesota, Pete replied, “I would be honored to be called the Larry Long of New York.”

Through a curriculum called Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song, Larry has brought elders into schools for over thirty years to share their life stories with students. Over one-thousand of these life stories have been recorded and honored by Long with youth in song.

Now a Smithsonian Folkways recording artist, Larry has sung at major concerts and festivals throughout the United States and world.

Long is a recipient of the Bush Artists Fellowship, the Pope John XXIII Award, Leadership In Neighborhood Fellowship (St. Paul Companies), Sustainability Award, and In The Spirit of Crazy Horse Award for his work in forgotten communities.

Hospitality is predicated in generosity.  Generosity is predicated in gratitude.   You won’t give people the time of day unless you have a generous spirit.  Be generous with our kindness. Be generous with our patience.  Be generous with our compassion.  May we all have the courage to create a hospitable world where all are welcome.

Wisdom is paying attention to the good stuff.  Not all old people are wise, but all wise people are old.  Age gives us an opportunity to look back to discern what is good, what is important, and what is significant.  That is why we look towards our elders for their wisdom, to point us in a direction, to give us a new calibration, to remind us of what is good, what is right, and what is just.  Whatever you pay attention to, you get more of, so why not pay attention to the good stuff.

Friendship is a sweet gift. Friends are people who have our best interest in mind.  Friends enjoy being in each other’s company.  Friends are people who join together for the common good.  We do so much more good together then we could ever do alone.  Friends wish each other well.  A friend takes joy in your success because friendship is truly the basis of community.

Ever see a hospital built by cynics anonymous?  No, it’s good people who join together to do good work every day.  Wherever I go I meet good people who want to help me, serve me, and make my life a little bit better.  Isn’t it true that we reap what we sow?  If we are good, kind, and thoughtful it comes back to us.  If we are mean and cynical that comes back to us as well.  Let’s sow goodness and help make this world a little bit better one good deed at a time.  Thanks for all you do.

Isn’t it wonderful?  People are coming alive to the sounds of Spring. Birds are singing.  Snow has melted. The creeks are whistling, “Oh to be mudluscious and puddle-wonderful again.”   The poet Mary Oliver captures this in her poem, Why I Wake Early.  

Hello, sun in my face.

Hello, you who make the morning

and spread it over the fields

and into the faces of the tulips

and the nodding morning glories,

and into the windows of, even, the

miserable and crotchety– . . .

Hello sun in my face.  Thank you for waking me up to absorb the beauty of creation that is expressed with each new day of Spring.

Honoring the Sacred with Troubadour Larry Long and Storyteller Tom Thibodeau

There are things in life that are not for sale, which we call sacred. Like the ring on my finger that was given to me after my father passed. It’s through these objects, memories, stories, and traditions that we are reminded of who we are. As in these sacred Midewiwin principles passed down through the generations by the Elders of the Anishinaabe Nation:
Honor the aged; in honoring them, you honor life and wisdom. Honor life in all its forms; your own will be sustained. Honor women: in honoring women, you honor the gift of life and love. Honor promises: by keeping your word you will be true. Honor kindness: by sharing the gifts you will be kind. Be peaceful: through peace all will find Great Peace. Be courageous: through courage all will grow in strength. Be moderate in all things: work, listen and consider, your needs will be prudent.

“This is the same water that was here when dinosaurs were here.  There is no new water.  This is the only water we will ever know.  This is the same water my great ancestors drank from and harvested our wild rice upon. This water is sacred, because without water there’s no life.  You cannot drink oil.”  – Winona LaDuke,

In this episode of Community of Goodness, we honor the dignity of Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Workers Movement, Mother Jones, schoolteacher, community organizer, and co-founder of the Industrial Workers of the World, and the immigrant women from more than fifty-one nationalities who led the 1912 Lawrence Textile Strike against unfair labor practices and child labor.    We truly do stand upon the shoulders of these remarkable women who had the courage to fight for a living wage and the rights of women throughout our nation, so children can get a good education and not be forced to work in the mills.

“The New Colossus” is a sonnet by American poet Empoema Lazarus. She wrote the poem in 1883 to raise money for the construction of a pedestal for the Statue of Liberty. In 1903, the poem was cast onto a bronze plaque and mounted inside the pedestal’s lower level.  At the close of her sonnet it reads, “”Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.  Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Victor Borge, one of America’s real treasures, says, “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” Children under the age of five laugh or smile over three hundred times a day. Whereas people over the age of thirty-five laugh or smile roughly five times a day. We just don’t laugh enough. If we really want people to come together, we need to laugh together, play together, and be silly together more often.

We give thanks to the public servants who get in their trucks at four in the morning and make sure garbage is picked up.  Sanitation is taken care of and that we’re all kept safe from disease and malady. We give thanks to the public health workers who have put their lives on the line throughout this pandemic. We give thanks to the thousands of public citizens who serve the public good by sitting at the polls making sure our democracy works.

We give thanks to the public servants in office who have the courage to set aside their partisan differences on behalf of the common good, such as the Minnesota State Legislature who passed the most comprehensive firefighter well-being legislation in the nation in 2021. 

Minnesota Firefighter Initiative (MnFIRE) through their Hometown Heroes Assistance Program is now able to dedicate $4 million per year to ensure that every Minnesota firefighter will have access to the education, prevention and care needed to handle a cardiac, emotional trauma or cancer diagnosis.For more information: www.mnfireinitiative.com

In our urgent rush to get there we are going everywhere but being nowhere.  Far too busy managing with transactive speed to lead with transformative significance.  Urgency is not just about speed, it’s about filling space. So, our spirits are like the teacup overflowing, and exasperated by urgency.   We need to let go, step back and make space for silence. 

The more peace there is within us the more peace there will be in our troubled world.

Honoring His Holiness the Dalai Lama & Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“I’ve always considered myself to be one of the seven million human beings, nothing special. So, on that level I have tried to make people aware that the ultimate source of happiness is simply a healthy body and a warm heart.”  – His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“We are made for goodness.  We are made for love.  We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness.  We are made for all the beautiful things that you and I know.  We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders.  All are welcome.  Male, female, gay, or straight.  We all belong to this family, the human family, God’s family.”    –  Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Generosity is not merely something that we do, but an admirable quality of character.  A generous person naturally engages in acts of generosity.

One of those generous individuals was Ms. Gladys Milton.  Ms. Milton lived to be 75 years of age and delivered over 3,000 babies throughout rural Alabama and Florida in her lifetime.  Most of which, were home births due to Jim Crow laws,  which prevented African American women from giving birth in hospitals.  

Another woman of generosity was the Mrs. Virginia McKnight Binger whose father, a chief executive of 3M, and mother set up the McKnight Foundation.  Every year under the banner of ‘Unsung Heroes’, the McKnight Foundation and the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits keeps Virginia McKnight Bingers legacy alive by honoring four change agents working in and with their communities — helping people connect with one another, secure resources, and tell their truths.

Placing the Santee Dakota Nation on reservations for the first time in 1851 was an act of cultural genocide. A mere decade thereafter, deprived of the freedom of the hunt, this ancient people stared starvation in its grim face. In August of 1862, there began a final defense of the Dakota Oyate – the long road to Wounded Knee. When the Wars of August were quelled, 303 Dakota were marked for the gallows. President Lincoln, in commuting the sentences of all but 38, paved the way for the largest mass execution in United States history.

As Suzanne Simard writes in her book ‘Finding the Mother Tree’, “The older trees are able to discern, which seedlings are their own kin. The old trees nurture the young ones and provide them food and water just as we do with our own children.”  As Oglala Lakota Elder Black Elk spoke, “. . . even in the slightest breeze you can hear the voice of the cottonwood tree; this we understand is its prayer to the Great Spirit, for not only men, but all things. . .”    Featured songs “Tree of Life” and “The Eyes of My Father” by Larry Long (BMI).
