A Million Damning Acts – Navigating the Impossible #3

Their Light is Their Darkness: exposing shallowness of leaders who don’t get it

I was completely surprised by the response to my last post “Leaders Do Not Have the Right to Pretend it Didn’t Happen.” Hundreds of people responded to my simple story of email posts and responses from a former friend who was part of a team of abusive leaders that shafted our little church, and more … More Their Light is Their Darkness: exposing shallowness of leaders who don’t get it

An Islamic Distopian Nightmare: #JeSuisCharlie #JeSuisParis

On the day after the atrocities in Paris, which left over 120 dead and a yet uncounted number wounded, I am roiling with anger. Moments like these make the old adage, “the pen is mightier than the sword” seem impotent and frail in the face of tragedy.
