ONLY CHOOSE ONE OF THE QUESTIONS TO ANSWER. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE INTERVIEW WITH (ELIZABETH ALEXANDER) PLEASE DRAW INSIGHT FROM THIS INTERVIEW. IT IS AN AUDIO FORMAT https://onbeing.org/programs/elizabeth-alexander-words-that-shimmer/ In the introduction to her interview with Elizabeth Alexander, Krista Tippett points to the persistence with which poetry arises in her conversations, often, she says, “in unexpected contexts,” which I take to mean that she hears about poetry in places she wouldn’t anticipate hearing about it. She doesn’t elaborate on these contexts, but she does argue this, based on her observations about the persistence of poetry: “I think we’re starved for fresh ways to talk about difficult things—for language that would elevate and embolden rather than demean and alienate.” In a micro-essay of 250–300 words, build upon Tippett’s observations by responding to one of the following questions; you’re free to draw insights from her interview with Alexander as you do so:  1. Find and analyze (in brief) an example of language that elevates and emboldens individuals and/or communities. In your response, consider: what real-world effects might flow from such language? 2. Find and analyze (in brief) an example of language that demeans and alienates individuals and/or communities. In your response, consider: what real-world effects might flow from such language? 3. In what ways can individuals, communities, and/or social institutions work together to elevate public discourse? Be specific in your suggestions
