By Susan Shehata / January 27, 2017 /

    “The man walking in front of us was held at this camp,” my cousin whispered. It was the summer before my senior year in college and my parents and I were visiting my family in Germany. I had read the book, The Hiding Place, years earlier, and was deeply fascinated by the Holocaust.…

By Susan Shehata / January 10, 2017 /

We are connected. Our interdependence means that the actions of each individual does, indeed, affect others and the world around us, whether we like it or not. This awareness can lead us to take personal accountability. But, within that, it can also be tempting to blame those who are not operating from the same ideas,…
