The Until We Meet Again Tour – 17 August 2016, part 1

The Until We Meet Again Tour took part in the Racial Ethnic Leadership Institute as part of my new work as Coordinator for Leadership Development, Racial Justice, and Networking.

We stayed in Detroit and met at Windsor University in Canada. On 17 August, we went for dinner in downtown Windsor. June Lorenzo and I did some exploring. We were pleased to see these signs in a number of stores.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 16 August 2016

The Until We Meet Again Tour moved into a new phase on 1 August 2016. That day began the transition to my new position as Coordinator for Leadership Development, Racial Justice, and Networking. I will continue working in New York.

From 15 to 18 August, I went to Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario for the Racial Ethnic Leadership Institute. It was hot and humid, which seems to be a common complaint for the summer.

It was good to be with friends I have know and with whom I will now work closely. And it was good to make new friends. The adventure continues.

We are loved

lion and lambI read several stories yesterday and today about Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, who was killed while standing guard at the Ottawa’s National War Memorial. None carries the power, poignancy, and grace of the editorial cartoon by Bruce MacKinnon of Halifax’s The Chronicle Herald. Yet almost all are touching and moving tributes.

This evening, I read a story about Barbara Winters and others who ran toward the gunshots and provided first aid to Cpl. Cirillo. Their efforts failed, but they were marvelous, noble efforts. Humanity at our finest.

The story closes with a quote from Winters, a lawyer and former member of the Canadian Forces Naval Reserve:

When you are dying, you need to be told how loved you are.

Deep truth resounds in her words. Deep, deep truth.

But I want us to remember another truth:

When we are living, we need to be told how loved we are.

Each day.

Every day.

We are loved.

We are loved.

We are loved.

See you along the Trail.

Arrive 2 – 14 June 2014


I had posted for this day.
Then, walking along the Detroit riverfront,
I saw this statue.
And it left me to wonder:

Where have we arrived?

How much farther do we have to go?
