This is in response to The Meaning of Intelligence with Mike Ross. I went into foster care in 1976 when I was 14 years old. When I was enrolled into a new school, I was placed in the vocational path solely because I was in foster care. I was placed in classes that taught me how to balance a check book. I had some success running track. My track coach encouraged me to consider college. With his help, I transferred to the college prep courses and was Who's Who among high school students my senior year. I was awarded a track and cross country scholarship at Berry College and graduated in 1984 with a B.S.
Spiritually, I was drawn more towards the non-traditional. I studied Science of Mind (Ernest Holmes)for over 20 years and moved towards Buddhism (both non-dualistic) about 6 years ago because of the emphasis on mediation. I love exploring the Truth that runs through all teachings. I appreciate Speaking of Faith and Krista Tippett for presenting a deep and honest look at all the traditions. It's a beautiful and brilliant show.
with love and a deep bow
