Lindsay Menard-Freeman — Tackling Global Issues As A Learner & A Leader

Lindsay Menard-Freeman — Tackling Global Issues As A Learner & A Leader

<p>I opened this podcast by discussing the <em>International Holocaust Remembrance Day </em>that occurred over the weekend. During that short monologue, I shared a few quotes. I wanted to share those quotes here:</p><br><p>“People growing up today must know what people were capable of in the past and we must work proactively to ensure that it is never repeated."&nbsp;—Chancellor Angela Merkel</p><br><p>“To remember these men and women — those who perished and those who survived — is to strive to prevent such suffering from happening again. Any denial or indifference to the horror of this chapter in the history of humankind diminishes all men and women everywhere and invites repetition of this great evil." —President Donald Trump</p><br><p>"The threats of violence, xenophobia, and anti-Semitism still exist today. The murder of eleven Jews at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh ... is fresh in our minds." —Prime Minister Justin Trudeau</p><br><p>“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” —George Santayana</p><br><p>You’re going to love this week's podcast guest. She is incredible. Her name is <a href="http://www.torchlightcollective.org/lindsay-menard-freeman/" target="_blank">Lindsay Menard-Freeman</a>.
