A letter I received the other day:
"I’m sure you’ve had and heard your share of remarkable synchronicities since you started Change the Truth, but I thought you might appreciate yet another.
A friend of mine from Kansas City sent me the link for your blog this week. He had no way of knowing what I was working on at the time, a short essay about how little we Americans seem to know about the rest of the world until we can connect a human story to a place on the map. I’ve attached the piece so you can see how your work impacted my experience. Everything but the last four paragraphs had been written before I saw your blog.
This essay will eventually wind up on the Internet on our website, which will hopefully draw additional attention and support to your efforts.
After I get to the bank today, I’ll be sending a check for $285 to Change the Truth to cover school fees for a student. In future, as I am able, I will continue to support your work. Thank you for using your art and your heart to make a difference.
I really appreciated, also, your impressions at the ‘home of throwed rolls.’ The more we can raise consciousness of our outrageous excesses, the sooner we can shift the balance toward greater equality among members of our amazing human family."
I can’t share her essay just yet, as she is still polishing it, but never has anyone so poignantly and so precisely summed up what is at the heart of the mission of Change the Truth. I’d like to make her piece required reading for all! Watch for it here in the next month or so - it's entitled "Color My World."
