Leadership, like pretty much everything else, has changed over time in many parts of the world.  Strong leaders used to lead firmly from the top.  There was a clear and enforced heirachy of who was in charge and whose orders were to be followed.  Leaders led by giving orders with or without divulging the details of why, and everyone “under” them...

Forever In My Heart

The words they sang were translated from Mandarin to English on a scrap piece of paper delivered to me as I left campus to come back to the United States: “I fear I won’t have the opportunity to say goodbye to you because maybe we  can not meet each other again. Tomorrow you will leave this place and me.  When I think of this, the tears come down again. I will keep your face in my heart firmly forever.  I will value the gifts of you that you gave me forever.  These days we had together will never be forgotten in my heart. You can not promise whether you will come back, maybe I...

A True Hero:  Razia Jan

Here is the story of one that I have not (yet) had the pleasure of meeting, but who has inspired me to reach further and expand again into greater...

Want World Peace?  Educate Our Girls.

There are children starving all over the world.  The largest and hungriest group starving are girls.  Many of them are not starving because their families can’t feed them, or because of lack of food.  Many will spend their whole lives in this weak and hopeless condition of constant hunger; making them dependent on others for their very survival.  They are starving, even when they are eating.  What they are hungry for is knowledge.  Education.  A chance to learn.  To read, to write, to think beyond the walls of the barriers others have placed before them.
