When I first heard Jean I was in high school. It was at Guelph, Ontario in the early 70's and heard him speak to a large audience. I felt after that first experience that my life would be forever changed. "Tears of Silence" became my companion and "that my joy gives joy" a deep refrain. A summer spent at Daybreak was the most freeing experience of my life. The gift of living with Gordie, Francis, Peggy, Bill and Billy and others helped me to learn that I was loved just the way I was. Jean visited and I remember him telling the group that the boundary between good and evil runs through the middle of each of our hearts. I could never express enough gratitude for the hope and faith in humanity that Jean has inspired in my life and in the lives of many of the people I know. It was through Faith and Sharing that I met my beloved husband, Joe. Thank you, Jean, for the gifts of wisdom, humour and compassion that you have so generously shared with the world and for helping us to learn how to walk in peace with our brothers and sisters. God bless you.
