What a heartwarming blessing it was today to see Santiago and his school buddies at the 2nd grade Poetry Reading... it felt like pure and innocent food for the soul. ❤️ He also gave me a sweet giggle when he asked, “Did you notice how I used literary language, simile, and interesting line breaks?” 😍😂❤️ Here is the poem he shared with us:
By Santiago Asebey-Birkholm
zips around the sea like a bullet
After Swordfish exercises, he is hungry.
Swordfish wants a snack
Swordfish finds a squid
Chomp! Swordfish takes the food like a
bully pinching you.
The line breaks!
Swordfish is happy to be free again.

Gratitude has the power to open our hearts to the good that is constantly surrounding us... and I'm feeling that now as this extremely intense week comes to a close. I'm grateful for the power of adversity to remind us what is most important, deepen our devotion, connect communities, and expand our capacity to love. I'm grateful for your prayers because they really miraculously stopped the river of water that flowed around my family's house from entering it. We had some property damage to other buildings, but the main house is mostly fine! I am also infinitely grateful for the teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, as well as the opportunity to serve. You all taught me so much about our potential as human beings to hold the polarities of life... the absolute depths of pain in the same moment that LOVE, CONNECTION, and PERSONAL MISSION grow stronger than ever. Thank you to everyone who made our Healing Retreat possible, including Brittany Sinitch, Earle Birney @earlebirney, Betty Masi, Lorin Dana, and the Waldorf Astoria Boca Raton Resort for very generously providing us with such a special place for everyone to connect and heal. And, thank you to everyone who has so selflessly offered their time to help with the next phase of this heartfelt mission. I just arrived in Washington DC to film for the next week and a half, but when I'm home, we will start planning this event for the Parkland Community. I'll be back with you soon. Until then, I hope you can feel the depths of love and gratitude I'm sending your way because it's beaming out in all directions, straight from my heart to yours.
South Florida Friends, I’m sharing a Healing Trauma Retreat this week with teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas who were present for the shooting to help them start to heal and also provide tools for them to share with the kids when they are back in school next week. We’re also trying to gather resources for them to have a healing community and resources in the months ahead. If you have a healing service you would like to volunteer... if you are a massage therapist and want to donate a massage... or something else that arises from your heart.... please let me know. I’m also working on a big community event for the end of March and we will need lots of help and volunteers... more details soon. If you aren’t in the area, please keep sending your prayers and love. Everyone really appreciates it. ❤️🙏🏻❤️
Big powerful prayers are needed! My family’s heritage home is on the verge of being flooded. My great great Grandfather was a Danish sailor who had a merchant ship. He sailed around he world several times, shipwrecked 6 times, and finally ended up in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Our family has been there ever since. It has generations of our family memories... it’s the place we all come together and call Home. The water is flowing all around it like a river. Somehow by the grace of God, it is flowing inches above the foundation of the house, but is not in the house. They had to kayak down this morning to move all the furniture and save what they can. Please send your most powerful prayers. The Birkholm crew thanks you. ❤️🙏🏻❤️
