My Freedom Is In Your Hands

“What if this virus had a hidden agenda other than spreading fear about how it might compromise our health? What if hidden in its drive to be contagious, there was another message, urging to be heard?

Please consider what it is like, to be elderly or in bad health — and trapped inside prison?” Jacques Verduin, is the Founding Director of the Insight Prison Project, a non-profit which helps prisoners and challenged youth create the personal and systemic change to transform violence and suffering into opportunities for learning and healing.

Be The Change

Bring Verduin’s words to mind and heart each time you wash your hands this week. For more inspiration, check out this interview with him about “Guiding Rage into Power.” { more }
