NELSON MANDELA - A GREAT & GENEROUS MAN
The world mourns the passing of Nelson Mandela. His fearless generosity and leadership were in the service of transcending our differences by seeking our oneness as human beings. On his 90th birthday he said it is was time for new hands to lift the burdens of freedom for all – “It is in your hands now.”
We honor his iconic life by seizing every moment of human life as the right time to find common cause and shared hope for a world in which all are honored, valued and dignified. May his fearless generous spirit live on in each of us.

I recently had the experience of sitting with two women I had just met and listening to their stories. I was also able to tell a brief personal story. We all marveled at how vividly we lived into each other’s stories, how we were so easily right there with them. Read more
