Environment Faith and Spirituality Politics By Maya Mathias / September 10, 2016 Share Tweet Share Share This week on the US presidential election campaign trail, it’s been all about National Security and Foreign Policy, about defending our land from foreign incursions. There’s lots to say and write about these complex matters, especially as America marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11 this weekend. But another equally important story has been bubbling up in this land. In this episode of Weekend Wisdom, I tell you a story about 3 numbers, 2 women named Alice, and 1 beautiful milestone that unites people on 2 continents.
