“Whatever our narrative is, there’s that one light energy that connects us all. Borders are man-made. Birds fly over borders. They don’t know that they’re crossing from one city or state or country to another. It just is. So how do we look beyond the borders and boundaries that separate us? Whether it’s race, class, gender, geography, religion. And I started a new class on A New Human Narrative and we started with Inuit Myths and looking at them compared to the mythology of the Bible. We have similarities and differences in all our stories but we’re all just trying to answer the same essential question of ‘Where did we come from and how did this all began?’” – Melanie Gruenwald
