When I was in St. Paul, MN September 9-11, I had a conversation with Remi Douah, the Academic Progress Coordinator for the University of MN Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence and Anne Carroll, St. Paul School Board Member and Partner in Caroll, Franck & Associates. Remi said something that was so beautiful I had to write it down and want to save here:

Power is the ability to be so fulfilled and blessed by the spirit that you’re not afraid to give it away or to make room of others to share.

Which makes me wonder, “What does power look like in a democratic principled society?”
