When historians look back on the 21st century, how will they characterize this era in human history? In the first 15 years, we've already witnessed dramatic events – from the shock of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks to the rise of India and China as major players in the global economy to the déjà-vu of the recent moves by Russia to take over parts of Ukraine. Other issues such as economic inequality, environmental challenges, energy needs, immigration, technological advances, women’s rights, demographic changes, security/terrorism, nationalism, and religious freedom ripple across our communities and shape our everyday existence.
