Move the stone

The Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations hosted a seminar for a group from the University of Baltimore Law School. One of the speakers was Shulamith Koenig no relation although interestingly her husband’s family and my father’s family both appear to have lived in what is now Austria and at the time was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, founding president of the People’s Movement for Human Rights Learning. In her presentation, Shulamith said:

fall over a stone.
Everyone picks me up.
No one moves the stone.
By all means pick me up.
But someone
please move the stone.

See you along the Trail.
