Openness is our greatest human resource.

Goodbye Mrs. Dunham

                                  

 

I'm so sorry Barack. She loved you. She's so proud of you. She can move on knowing she did her best and it meant something to so many.

I feel as if my own white grandmother, the one who loved me unconditionally through all the turmoil and confusion of my parents' marriage and divorce, has died.

To lose the ones who believed in us--the ones who never let us go--these are the hardest losses. The ones from which we may never recover.

All we can do is try to give that to our own children, to love them unconditionally, to believe they have something monumental to give this world. To believe that their success is our success.

What else is there in this human realm?

To stand by your children. To refuse to abandon them. To be there.

Much aloha to you Mrs. Dunham, and to your grandson.

You are a role model for us all.

I've recently developed such a dependence on the wisdom and generosity of my own white grandmother that this really hit me hard. Tonight will be a night of reflection for so many reasons.

I know..this is so sad....especially the timing of it...if we have even one person to love us like the way she loved him (which you can even see in that picture), we are so, so blessed...
