How It All Began
Back in 2000, I was sitting thinking about the six-week trip across the country that I had just taken with my daughter. I was wondering about my life when suddenly, but peacefully, my mind opened to a vision of the earth. I saw it as if from God's view, seeing the whole planet AND individuals all over it.
As I watched, people started helping each other forgive. Slowly, love and peace filled our world. All over our planet, I saw one person help another forgive, one after another letting go of their resentments in coffee shops, offices, churches, homes, etc. Throughout this time, I kept hearing "the forgiveness foundation" and seeing centers that seemed to provide support in each area so that this healing activity could spread.
Eventually the earth became brighter, more peaceful and harmonious. While I was viewing this brighter, softer world, I heard, "Do you want to take this on?" I decided, as we all have in the Foundation, to make that vision a reality.
