Interesting Book/Video, Oliver Burkeman, author of the book "The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking"

Thank you Michael for your encouraging and thought-provoking words. Happy to read about rankism. Yes, identity politics are rife with complexities and hidden pitfalls, but more importantly to me, is the opening up of the conversations. Without them, our ranks won't change.
Thanks again and blessings of the new year!

Thanks so much for your comment on my post Michael. I really appreciate your reflection on your own program. You might find this article interesting as well, which is about how local groups are too often overlooked in international aid projects for the capacities they do have.

And please do continue to follow how-matters.org!
