see Jane inspire

"The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves."
--- Dr. Jane Goodall

Wow, today I'm feeling so fortunate! I was able to get a pair of tickets to attend Jane Goodall's lecture at FAU on February 27. Sal and I are thrilled! I've met the esteemed Dr. Goodall once before when she lectured at Butler University in Indianapolis back in the 90s. Her topic then was conservation, but this lecture will focus on peace, tolerance, and compassion. In addition to her lifetime of work and accomplishments as a primatologist, conservationist, animal rights activist, and founder of the The Jane Goodall Institute, she is also a United Nations Messenger of Peace. An extraordinary woman!
