Resolutions That Guard Your Heart
September 23, 2005
Author: Susan Perlman

We don’t always know how the resolutions we make may one day guard our hearts—or even our bodies—as I discovered at the Israel in the Garden” celebration in San Francisco.

Taken from a special edition of our internal staff report, Staff-Wise Stirrings, last year It is September 12, 2001 and I wonder how long the shock of yesterday’s horrors will last.
