Shared Moments

I shared this moment with a people once, where their smiles were like capturing every bit of the night's sky. I shared this moment with a people once, where every exchange was honest between us. I shared this moment with a people once, where I felt the communication through their eyes at times without a spoken word. I shared this moment with a people once that was so profound it could only be explained in the sight of their tears. I shared this moment with a people once, where I'd given a piece of my heart in the service of human experiences. I shared this moment with a people once and I am loving the memories of those big bright smiles, those honest exchanges, those deep looks into their eyes, shaking their hands and sharing life in one powerful breath. I shared this moment with a people once, where I learned so much even in a dark place, that light still shines upon all of us human beings. I shared this moment with a people once, that I will always appreciate. I shared this moment with a people once and there is no doubt that I will forever remember all of you. Sincerely, Timothy

Letter of Appreciation

Hello: To all who support the ideals of restorative justice and life within challenges and possibilities. There are s- o many people who await the opportunity of being involved in the kind of programs that represent restorative justice and challenges and possibilities that never get the chance to experience it once. I know the blessings of being able to have experienced it, but also to have completed it. I really would have loved being a part of this again and again, yet for reasons outside of my control it cannot happen at this moment. So, I settle for simply letting all of you know that I carry you with me in my thoughts and prayers. I've met people like; Ms. Vanden Branden, Ms. Van Caster, Ms. Doxtater and Mr. Doruff who are great human beings and ambassadors of goodwill, giving their time and efforts to protect and provide us all with best chances of life as it relates to interacting and respecting each other. There are people like Professor Janine Geski and the survivors of crime who readily speak about the injustices of this world on all levels; physically, mentally and emotionally sharing their truths and allowing others to gain power in accepting responsibility for the wrongs that they may have caused others. It really takes heart to be the kind of human beings these people have become and I not only appreciate it, but I honor that kind of civility. There is the youthful and elder guests of all cultures and literally from all over the globe, who are all so important to the circle of life and it's value to us all. These are only a few who I have met with, but so many more who I haven't that are also important.
