Today my thoughts are with people in Charleston.
Thirteen years ago today, my family gathered in memory of my brother. I remember people in Detroit and Dearborn offering kindness, treating me gently as I attempted to function in my state of shock. Their compassion mattered.
Today I join a project, a gesture of compassion extended to the people of Charleston. The Charleston Modern Quilt Guild will make a quilt from pieces of cloth sent by people like me. The quilt is a symbol wrapping the people of Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in good will.
Symbols matter. People matter. pjb
to participate...by August 1st, send a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of solid cloth in a solid color or a print which reads as solid---a message can be centered in the block with your name & location, but please add your name & location
