I am often asked by my friends – particularly my White friends, “What can I do?” “How can I make an impact?” “I’m only one person and the issues are so many and big!” ” Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” -Margaret Mead […]
How Is Your Soul?
Do you usually ask people, “How are you doing?” I know I do, expecting that they will tell me truly how they feel. I suspect that most folks will say, “Great!”, “Fine!” Blessed!” And a myriad of other exclamations we randomly toss out without rhyme or reason. But is it true? And are we […]
