On the Road: L. Tsegaye of Silver Spring, MD #DismantlingWhiteousness

Lene and I met twice during our stay in the DC area.  All told, we spoke together for about two hours over coffee, and I wish I could have had a professional videographer with us to get a larger cross section of our conversation, as her observations on this country as a person who grew up in Ethiopia were freshly provoking and encouraging to me.  Nonetheless, she has great hope in the potential of the United States to truly set the bar for conversations that transcend race, culture, and religious differences to find our common humanity.  If we have the courage to sit down, face to face, and learn.  

peace by peace by peace,
