History can't be healed,
but it can be remembered and those of us who care to, can bear
responsibility for some of its effect. That's what I believe we
were doing in Lunna. We were doing a small act of kindness for
people who were murdered, tending to the graves of their
ancestors. So much of our daily lives is self-centered. So
many things we do are for our own preservation. I am immensely
grateful to have had the opportunity to do something physical
and hopeful for others.
Then there was the
experience of traveling with the students! Such smart, strong,
committed young adults - what a privilege to be in their company
for two weeks!
My constant prayer is
for peace and my deepest hope is for an end to violence.
Thank you for the opportunity to work on both of these goals in
