"Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed your presentation at our ROBS Meeting on Friday. I really liked the project when the Board did it in December, but it was amazingly fascinating to be an observer and see it in process with the four groups.

“Our personalities truly are a ‘thumbprint’ and so many were in evidence that day. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our society’s thumbprint could incorporate the idea of sharing so that war and terrorism could truly end. When I think of the terrible state our world is in, I’m always reminded of Fulghum’s book titled Everything I Need to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten. Truly, sharing one’s crayons and not grabbing whatever snack one thinks looks great would go far in our political world…..I love the last line (of the poem )!!

Thanks again, John, it was a terrific morning." Marge Kirchner

“I’ll tell you, I was very frustrated watching our colleagues play. I could see who the hoarders were and who the givers were and that bothered me. It seemed that all the same people were doing most of the giving, just the way it is all over the world. That really bothers me but I’m not sure what we can do about it – I see it in my own family. Somehow I had expected the teachers to be different. Perhaps I held them to a higher standard.” Shirley Walker Lloyd
