Dear Desmond Tutu and his daughter lovingly invite us (through this most beautiful video) to walk with them, through a challenge. The challenge is to take one baby step with them each day for thirty days. Here is one excerpt:
"Because we are fragile and vulnerable creatures, we experience hurt, harm, and loss. The wound can be physical or emotional. We can be hurt with a weapon or a word. A slight from a stranger, a rejection from a friend, a betrayal by a loved one are all affronts to our dignity.
"There is no way of living with other people without, at some point, being hurt. When we are hurt we face the choice to retaliate or reconnect...
"We are social creatures, and our physical survival is just as dependent on happy relationships and social connections as it is on food, air, and water. Today we are going to look at when we have chosen to retaliate and when we have chosen to reconnect."
The Tutu Global Forgiveness Challenge displays beautiful, simple tools (brief videos, poignant meditations, and a few life-changing visuals) which make this challenge quick, memorable and help us clearly see...how very powerful we are...with each baby step we take. ❤
