An Open Letter to The Universe

I like to write about things that matter to me, but rarely do I write with the raw, precious grit and honest humor of authors like Ann Lemott.

King readily admitted to learning most of what he knew about civil disobedience, resistance and nonviolence from Gandhi. When describing the bus...

On Monday, in Part 1 of this three part post I told you why I think Martin Luther King, Jr. was so great and why we need him today. As I also mentioned, I am on the committee for DuPage County’s MLK celebration that happened Monday night. Let me tell you, it was something else. The energy was electrifying and the speakers were more than inspiring. Rev. Otis Moss, III from Trinity UCC in Chicago outdid himself! He...
