« Monday Cartoon [by Nin Andrews] | Main | Breakfast at the Border by Mónica de la Torre (via Saveur) »

August 21, 2012


As I read this posting and reflect on the valuable experience we had writing our words and expressing your thoughts on paper. I decided to leverage the lessons learned from the writing retreat and use Jim and Joy's writing prompt in a Global Service-Learning Seminar in Jo-Burg, South Africa. With 81 participants, asked them to writing about what they were feeling at the moment... and for the next 5 minutes they wrote.

Then for the next 40 minutes, they read their stories. Truly transforming...

Thank you, Jim and Joy! I have taken the lessons learned across the globe---create global conversations and created new ways for nurses to appreciate their voices.

Forever grateful,
Donna Nickitas
