Happy birthday wishes to Akemi Johnson and congratulations on her book, Night in the American Village. We met early in the process and I was so impressed with her adventure and writing that I wrote her remarkable life story and published it in my book, When Half is Whole. Here is an excerpt:
"Wisdom is seen as passing from elders to youth, but elders can learn from the struggles of youth. Sometimes we find the courage to confront old ghosts once we witness the courage displayed by those who are younger. Their encouragement may help us to slay the dragons defending our wounds, thereby allowing wounds to be healed by those who witness and touch them."
