"Much of public health is determined by a very utilitarian philosophy where you have a small pie and you cut up the pie and you use it to benefit the largest number of people. And yet, when you talk to people who are suffering they are not thinking of these utilitarian philosophies, they are actually thinking of survival. I think we have to take the side of the poor and say that the current size of the pie is insufficient. We have to fight for a bigger pie."

- Joia Mukherjee, in an interview with AIDS Bulletin, September 2005

I am so grateful that I am going to be training as a healer with doctors like this.

With blessings for a day of opening to brokeness and realizing our potential to build and to heal.
