Dear friends and family:
For the past two years, I’ve worked as a journalist covering politics for The Conversation. I love the work I do, and I believe it is essential to our democracy. But I’ve also felt worn down by the news and frustrated by how divided we’ve become in the U.S.
I’ve had to do some soul-searching and ask myself, what else can I do?
“Our goal is to create a beloved community and
this will require a qualitative change in our souls
as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
I decided that this year, between May 16 and 27, I will join a team of Emory University students, faculty and staff on a journey to South Africa. The Emory “Journeys of Reconciliation ” program is an educational and cross-cultural experience that explores the root causes of conflict and forces for peace.
What I love about this program is its affirmation that “barriers of race, religion, nationality, gender and class can and ought to be overcome.”
