Sometimes I feel actual physical discomfort when I think about the decisions that are before our world over the next generation or so. I’m the type of person who will choose to try and see where other people are coming from almost to the degree of great emotional risk. I have listened to people of … More State of Confusion 2020
If you had the power to end all of the violence in the world with a single action, would you do it? I imagine that most of us would say that of course we would. No one wants violence, right? It is just an unfortunate deterrent that we must use to prevent greater violence from … More Stop In the Name of Love
On November 15, 2016, a week after the election of DJT, two friends and I facilitated a mindfulness meditation on dismantling racism that we called, “Peeking Through the Blinds”.

As we all know there are innumerable diversities at work in every individual and my comments with regard to the subject of race, religion, culture, or any other category under which one … More Give Us Us Free!
I can honestly say that I don’t know if I would even be a Christian if it were not for Martin Luther King Jr. Even though I was raised with the Bible and church, MLK Jr. was the greatest example of Christianity that I have known in modern times.
