Community means strength that joins our strength

One of my colleagues in the nonprofit community in Minnesota is transitioning from her role in supporting nonprofit leadership development to attending school full-time. I'm happy that she's moving forward to her next chapter with a strong network of relationships that she has built over the years, illustrated by her sharing the beautiful poem below in one of her recent farewell emails.

 Somewhere, there are people To whom we can speak with passion Without having the words catch in our throats Somewhere a circle of hands Will open to receive us, Eyes will light up as we enter, Voices will celebrate with us Whenever we come into our own power Community means strength that joins our strength To do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter, A circle of healing, A circle of friends, Someplace where we can be free. Starhawk Dreaming the Dark
