In recent years there has been a lot of talk of unity and collaboration. Imagine what we could achieve if all the hundreds of millions of people and hundreds of thousands of groups talking about a brighter future, were to unite and collaborate towards a common cause and vision. We are meeting in Rotterdam, after the Paris COP21, for the Conference of the Movements, the COM21, with change-agents, grassroots leaders, organizations and movements to move beyond words - and into effective unified action.
It's really quite amazing all that has happened to get me to this point - and I think it is because of throwing myself into it with my whole heart, no thought of what I would "get out of it". That's my belief; if we each choose to do what our hearts lead us to, our own path will open before us. We often can't see it so, hopefully, we will have a guide or mentor to help us choose well!
Chief Phil Lane Jr. has become that, helping us as we strive to choose the path that will best take us forward, toward the more beautiful and just world that we all know is possible. That I may share a circle with him is one of my greatest honours.
