Went to Gaithersburg, Maryland to make a presentation. Walked during the presentation and in airports enough to make 10,000 steps. For the second day in a row, did not do a focused exercise period so there was no real playlist for the day.

Healing: A Tribute

Touching wisdom from Elisabeth Sophia Lee. Honored to be her friend.
“I always wondered how she was able to give so much when she had so little to offer. But, as I have grown, I have come to understand that her selflessness was liberating. It was as positive for her as it was for those she was serving. It gave her complete freedom to find goodness in all people, and in every circumstance. I try everyday to follow suit in this practice. In alleviating myself of the “self,” I have lifted off a lot of the fear I once possessed, and in turn I have become a kinder, more compassionate person.’

A color I am thankful for

Food

It should come as no surprise that purple is the color. Thanks to the saints of First Presbyterian Church of Whitestone for a purple birthday party.

Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.

Removing the Burden of Shame: Sexual Assault in Asian-American Communities

” Just because we do not share our experiences publicly does not mean that Asian Americans are immune to sexual violence. Just because we carry the burden for decades doesn’t make our experiences untrue. Just because we do not share our stories doesn’t mean that we need to continue to live in shame.” Read the Rev. Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim’s post on responding to sexual assault in Asian-American communities.

This is my latest for Sojourners on sexual assault and the Asian American community.
