"I was inspired by the children going to Ground Zero and calling out their parents' names with great courage and sadness. In writing prayers for them I found a universal humanity in my three themes:
• The need to find courage to overcome the fears within us.
• The need for kindness, generosity and love to bring comfort and solace at a time of suffering.
• The need for hope and resiliency to rebuild after a tragic and traumatic event.
Love is our greatest gift, connecting all creeds and cultures, and I hope with all my heart that Healing Light: Thirty Messages of Love, Hope and Courage may make a contribution to the spiritual awakening we seek in these troubled times. "
The Light of Healing Hope Foundation
This philosophy has led me to found the Light of Healing Hope Foundation in the hope it will help light a new pathway to comfort. The Light of Healing Hope Foundation (LHHF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization working to build a program of hope and healing through poetry and beautiful images wherever there is suffering. Today, Johns Hopkins, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and NIH are distributing LHHF’s words of love, hope, and courage. I have given my rights, titles and interests in Healing Light, Heavenly Order, and Beloved Spirit to the Foundation so that the Foundation may continue the work of bringing hope and healing to those in need.
