  2. I think a lot of us are looking for hope and light right now, in a world that seems to be going mad. Poetry can truly be, as you say, a balm to soothe our wounded souls.

  3. Accepting love/wherever I can find it. I love Teaching With Fire, did not know of this one of ‘leading’, Myra. Thank you, and for the video. It humbles us, doesn’t it? I’ve been following the Philippines chaos a little bit. I’m sorry for this turmoil for you, for your family and friends.

    I’m sorry to hear that you have a political train wreck happening. It’s hard enough to watch the possibility of one here in the US, but to live with one…well, I hope we don’t have to and I’m sorry you do.

    I didn’t know there was a third book in this series! Just a week or so ago I was looking for my copy of Teaching With Fire…did I lend it to someone? 🙂

    It’s hard, but it’s always important to choose love and acceptance.

    Wow. That video.

  5. That video is very moving. Terrifying. It reminded me of my ancestors, forced to leave, unwelcome when the arrived. Poor, starving, but determined. Hard-working. We should all be able to relate to refugees here in the US.
