As Martin Luther King Jr Day approaches, here in the USA, we are reminded of the eloquence, clarity, and peaceable nature of this fallen leader. This week’s theme, Gentle Leaders, brings to mind many internationally recognized political Gentle Leaders, Mahatma Ghandi, Malala Yousafzai, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama, There are others, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield changed the way the world does business in 1978 with the founding of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. Sharon Charde changed the way I see the world with gentle guidance in her counselor’s office. Who/What are your gentle leaders? Do you have a mentor or guru who deserves a shout out? Each Friday, a column here called One Thousand Words features a collection of images submitted by readers based on that week’s theme. Send an image with 1000 Words in the subject line by Wednesday night to Crispina firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion this week!
May the world find a way to be Gently Led to global harmony.
