Thoughts on Orlando (by Scott Douglas, Chair of the LGBT Law Section)

Friends and colleagues:

As I write this, it is just after 3:00 am in Orlando. The candles from tonight’s vigil are still burning amid the roses in our garden where we set them down in the fading light of this sad day and watched the sky bleed red at sunset. Like all of us, my husband and I awoke this morning to the shock and horror of news both too familiar and wholly foreign: unprecedented savagery unleashed against our community, a hail of bullets cutting down 50 of us: our friends,…

The Space Between (by Andrew Kidde)

Here at the Bellevue Mediation Program our work is first and foremost a matter of listening to stories.   We have an unspoken contract with our clients – you tell us your story, we’ll try to help you.   Our volunteers are paid in stories.  To be a good mediator, you need a hunger for stories, because that’s what sustains you, and also because your clients can tell if you’re not interested.…
