Coping with Terrorism and Grief Webcast/Interview
|Webcast Description and Archive Access|
Among the most effective antidotes (and preventatives) for terrorism and
grief are laughter, love, and connections. Each of us needs them and each of us
can provide them -- for and with others. We need to build more
"nurturing communities" in which everyone can feel connected,
supported, and encouraged to learn, teach, and grow.

[Steve Gilbert's Posting to AAHESGIT of 11/00]
"What is connectedness?
It is a sense of being a part of something larger than oneself.
It is a sense of belonging, or a sense of accompaniment.
It is that feeling in your bones
that you are not alone. It is a
sense that, no matter how scary things may become, there is a hand for you in
the dark. While ambition drives us
to achieve, connectedness is my word for the force that urges us to ally, to
affiliate, to enter into mutual relationships, to take strength and to grow
through cooperative behavior." [p. 196]
