"How can I have a mind that is energized to do something about it but not reacting in anger but responding in firm kindness that things need to be different."

Wow! Our little city is on the edge of great change and I find myself in the midst of those who are leaders in our community's direction. Our biggest challenge is not imagining our potential, it's not even finding funding in these tight fiscal times...But rather, its how we treat each other as we move together through this process.

Moreover, I am a mother. And my greatest hope for my children has always been that they know how to be a good friend. Lately, I've added to that prayer...I hope that they learn to have kindness for those who may never be friends. And I hope that I am able to do the same as I make my way.

This conversation with Sylvia Boorstein was a gift to me. Thank you.
