Nine years ago this week, while typing my column for this newsletter, the unthinkable happened. The date was September 11, 2001 and I was in the middle of a paragraph recounting the terrific time I had while giving a talk in Sioux City, Iowa when the scenes that transfixed the world began to unfold across my television set. The juxtaposition between the terrorists who unleashed such horror and the loving caregivers I met in Iowa was striking and I commented that no such acts would tear this country apart; rather…

“No matter what ends they hope to accomplish, I guarantee you that with the community, love and support that I have seen across this country in cities large and small, these cowards will never win...”

Nine years forward and much of what was to be expected has happened, as has much that we could not have anticipated.

Take care

Feature Article

Firehouse Project


Dear Friends;
 
This is a project that is very, very meaningful. As a clinical social worker, compassion fatigue therapist for first responders; caregivers to cops and fireman, this too is very meaningful for me. Attached is a Press Release from the event organizers. Many know the challenging times we all have had, as of late. This project puts everything in perspective.
 
Please feel free to publicize the event as the cause is beyond worthy. I am truly amazed to be a part of it in such a special way; a humbling and deep experience, to be sure.
 
Peace & Serenity,
 
Jamie
