I was so impressed with the amazing work that Tarek is doing to bring people from diverse backgrounds together through his film and site. Coming up in September is Take The Pledge found on the site. I encourage everyone interested to go to the site, see the movie and do what you can to help the world to heal and to make a difference.
Also on the show was Ruth Kozak reading poems from one of her books about Alexander the Great. Sharon Rowe of Big Bessie fame had a new story and the e-poem by Paramananda Mahanta from India read by Victor Schwartzman.
