New Beginnings and Episode 3

#Unify

My soul brother, Dr Paul Zeitz is inspiring me in his journey towards “Revolutionary Optimism”.

Every minute of this podcast is breathtaking and breath-giving. Seriously.

From the moment it started until it ended, I felt like I was lifted up to believe in ‘Collective Transformation’ with love as our guide.

Professor Marcus Anthony Hunter and Dreisen Heath opened my eyes and reminded my tired spirit that, “We are winning every day by still being here.”

Every minute of this 45 minute podcast reminded me about “Why am I here?” And just after I heard that question asked, I said “yes” to stepping forward yet again so that I can better serve our community. This podcast made me do it.!
