Thoughts on Ukraine
It is beyond heart wrenching to watch the attacks on a sovereign nation unfold. This affects everyone single of us—all of us who stand for human rights, freedom and civil liberties. We are (collectively) watching the rich and powerful gain traction in their endeavor for world domination. This is undeniably about autocracy vs. democracy. Fascism…
Overcoming: Finding Resilience in the Face of Adversity
In my previous blog I wrote about “overcoming”—and how we, as a nation, still have quite a lot to overcome. I do not want to minimize the progress we’ve made up to this point, for it’s been great in many ways. But there’s still more work to be done. Changing the conditions of a society…
Our Nation’s Defining Moment: one hundred and sixty years ago (1861)—the Rise of the Civil War

Where do we go from here?
There is an underlying ignorance and ugliness that exists in our country—which is being perpetuated, generation after generation. As we know, not long ago (160 years) we were forced to fight a war with our own countrymen. Different values. Willing to start a war to uphold those values. The South did not want to be…

There are times in life when something so big happens, that it’s impossible to ignore. During these times, I look for meaning—if there is a message, something to be learned. In this very moment, something really big is happening to ALL of us (in the world) simultaneously—and I have no doubt that there is something…
