So You May Know...

In Memoriam

We would like to say farewell to a very dear friend and benefactor of our VolunTourism efforts, Mr. Anthony, "Tony," Sabatini.

Known as the "Father of Open Space" in Jefferson County, Colorado, Tony was instrumental in setting aside roughly 4 million acres of open space and recreational area for wildlife refuge, outdoor activities, and aesthetic drive-scapes for residents and visitors alike.

Future generations will be grateful for his tremendous vision of the importance of protecting natural habitats and pristine countryside.

We also bow our heads and hearts to those in London who lost their lives or loved ones. To those who were injured, may recovery be swift and certain.

WEEKLY WEBCAST

Tuesdays 10am ET/7am PT

As I reflected on the incidents in London, I realized that because "The VolunTourist" is read on six continents and in thirty-eight countries around the world, my family is quite extensive. I checked with some of the UK subscribers to make sure that they were okay following the bombings. It was very sobering to think that someone with whom I am connected could have been impacted by such blatant ignorance.

I am hopeful that as we continue to sow the seeds of goodwill and cultural connection and interaction through VolunTourism that these events will not have hearts in which they can be harbored and ultimately enacted.

May the gentle rain of mercy and compassion find a home in the valley of our sorrows and quickly replenish us to move forward in our efforts to make the world a more forgiving and accepting landscape for us all.
