Orator - Pierre Allard
Another review -- from someone who has always inspired me and who, as a great orator, played a critical part in my journey. I dared to send him a draft of the manuscript, and this is what he wrote back.
Thank you for taking us on your life personal journey. What a ride!
From the time I first met you at Mount Allison University, I admire your honesty, courage, your 'way with words' and your willingness to explore new avenues. I found all these qualities as I traveled with you through the pages of Dispelling the Clouds...And dispelling many you did...
You make a compelling case for 'forgiveness' in all its complexity and you are absolutely right...It is the path to life and to many miracles as you say.
Since 2007, Judy and I have seen many of these miracles in the over 350 encounters held in post-genocide Rwanda between the survivors of the genocide and the genocide perpetrators.
Thank you for sharing your story with us... As in all your previous writings, you help us hold our lantern higher in a most complicated world.
Blessings on you, Cliff, your family and on Dispelling the Clouds.
