HARASSMENT

I'm sick at heart, hearing all these sexual harassment charges that are flying about in the media today. Sick because they involve not only those with whom I politically disagree, but also those I admire. Sick because of the hysteria that seems to have taken hold of our society. Sick because we, as a culture, seem unable to make thoughtful distinctions, to think critically, to come to balanced and well-thought conclusions.

GRANDFATHERS & GRANDSONS

(for my grandsons)

Tomorrow is your sixth birthday, Luka. In this morning’s meditation, my thoughts turned not only to you but also to my older grandson, your cousin, Joe; and to my own two grandfathers. I was thinking about how important grandfathers can be to their grandsons, and my own role as grandfather… I write down these thoughts for you both, so that you’ll have at least a passing acquaintance with your great-great grandfathers and your great-grandfathers, as well as with...
