Change Crazy

Fifty years ago, the futurist Alvin Toffler, fore-witnessed and coined what he termed the coming of “the Information Age.” He also warned that the “roaring current of change” brought forth in this new age by emerging technologies would lead to “confusional breakdowns.” In brief, change would change us. And not only for the good. I call this insidious contagion of the information age, “Change crazy.” Neuro-psychologists tells us change makes…

Forward and Backward, Evil is Live

  Evil is Live, in the world not again but still.   Evil is Live, in a loss for which words are at a loss.   Evil is Live, in those who take what cannot be given forgiveness.   Evil is Live, in those who in seeking heaven achieve hell and map the way for others.   Evil is Live, in those who parent pain, and in the pain of…

People who are always right are usually wrong

As Executive Director of The Justice Project, I find myself sensitized to what those in the world around me think is just. Sadly, I have witnessed too many of us can’t discern what is just and what is just our opinion. The consequence of this is living in a contentious world of polarized “I am right” opinion and argument passing for conversation. And it got me thinking about the injustice served amidst all the shouting.…

CASA Nebraska State Conference

I was deeply moved this past week to present the Keynote address to a statewide audience of CASA NEBRASKA volunteers. The title of presentation was: OF ALL THE THINGS YOU CAN MAKE IN LIFE, WHY NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. The audience were CASA volunteers who volunteer to open their hearts, and give of their time and as a result make a real difference just as surely as societal indifference scars us all. There…

Too Sad. Too True. Too Wrong to Continue.

Sometimes the greatest challenge is to honestly witness your life. And in my role as Executive Director of The Justice Project, I wanted to bring back an honest report on some of what I have seen, heard, learned and felt. But rest assured this is not going to be a travelogue. Rather it will be a series of reality snap shots that have deeply touched my life and my heart,…

The Just and Injust of Diabetes

It is rare when one meets a soul as wise, caring, and no nonsense as Dr. Lois Jovanovic. Her bio speaks to her public accomplishments; those who have been her patients, her colleagues, or in the circle of her dynamic “we can get this done” personality know we are blessed. Diabetes is an illness with far reaching lessons and warnings that we feel are well within our charter to make…
