I would like to thank Tom Callanan for his patience and the request
for me to make a contribution; this is a great honor. I read through
the book, I felt so connected and went on a journey remembering many
incidents, stories and actions of the power of collective wisdom
and the trap of collective folly. I have experienced both and this
book has organized the concepts and weaved them together citing many
elements. Personally, I found it enriching, inspiring and practical
- just what we need today as a heritage for our children to help
shape, inform and transform the day- to- day challenges of society
into opportunities for positive forces that will nurture and heal.
More to come...
