New York Times Journalist and Author Thomas Friedman has a marvelous book called, “Thank You for Being Late.” In that book Friedman reminds us that we must learn to live in the eye of the hurricane. What’s in the eye of the hurricane? Calm, stillness, quiet. Yet, from within that space we can draw energy from the storm so we can be dynamic and stable in responding to the lives of each other. He goes on to say that the best analogue for the eye of the hurricane is a healthy community, where people feel protected, respected, and connected. A place we all call home.
