Thoughts on being Different

By Michael Van Eerden

Beautifully Different!

My daughter Jane and I regularly exchange emails on a variety of topics; recently, one of our exchanges touched upon concepts central to the upcoming “Spread the Word to End the Word” day. At the link below, you will find my letter to Jane this year, as well as Jane’s original post on this topic from last year and a letter by her sister Mary. If this message touches you, I would greatly appreciate your “spreading” the word by sharing this with as many people you think might benefit from it. Thank you, Mike
