I've been working in education for the past 12 years. First as a public school teacher and school founder, and then as a partner to international entrepreneurs launching education programs in their own countries. As a child and again while living abroad (4+ years in Europe, Asia & the Middle East), I was struck by the lack of unity/connection between the healthy, the walking wounded/ill, and the dying in the US. The contrast is stark, particularly between the US and Asia. I began studies in spirituality and presently serve as a caregiver with Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco.
That is such a great idea re: clarifying the steps with a headline. I think right now the post is locked so I can't edit in this phase (OpenIDEO team, let me know if that is wrong!) but will absolutely fix this in the next round. Thank you so much for the feedback!
