Listening to this lovely, wise and wonderful lady tell stories of a life worth living and how the South End of Boston has changed over the last fifty years was just amazing. She took us step by step through how the legendary leaders of the South End (of Boston) overcame the challenges of her time while helping to foster in social and economic justice. While she believes, we still have a lot of work to do she is proud of her contribution, as am I. The evening was full of storytellers but her smile and quiet belly laugh made my night.
What do I hope, to have powerful, funny, sentimental, joyous stories that make me laugh/cry deep down in my belly to tell! “Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile.” – Sir Wilfred Grenfell
