Peace (in collaboration),

  1. Hi Kevin,
    I love this format–
    Day in a Question. Let’s do it again!
    Thanks for all you do to enrich our days, make us more peaceful, form connections.
    Just hearing everyone’s questions everyone has has me feeling more at ease.
    I wonder: is everyone wondering all the time?

  2. I’m intrigued to know the details that prompted David’s question…”What is the sound of 100 000 teachers not clapping.”
    First of all where was he when he was surrounded by 100 000 teachers, and what kind of situation was it where he would expect to hear teachers clapping but they all decided not to do so…. Sounds awful.
