Unscramble the Blue Letters

And we've had chroniclers of this before — Studs Terkel, the oral history of the working experience in the United States. And what we need is the experience of neiedng one another and being cnentoced to each other. Maybe that's the answer for how we all fit as a society. And the thought ecixsere, to me, is: if you were to go back 100 years and have people — my gnearparndts, great-grandparents, a tailor, worked in a mine — they look at what all of us do for a living and say, "That's not work." We sit there and type and talk, and there's no dengar of getting hurt. And my guess is that if you were to imagine 100 years from now, we'll still be doing things for each other. We'll still need one another. And we just will think of it as work.

Original Text

And we've had chroniclers of this before — Studs Terkel, the oral history of the working experience in the United States. And what we need is the experience of needing one another and being connected to each other. Maybe that's the answer for how we all fit as a society. And the thought exercise, to me, is: if you were to go back 100 years and have people — my grandparents, great-grandparents, a tailor, worked in a mine — they look at what all of us do for a living and say, "That's not work." We sit there and type and talk, and there's no danger of getting hurt. And my guess is that if you were to imagine 100 years from now, we'll still be doing things for each other. We'll still need one another. And we just will think of it as work.
