It's been said that holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Study after study shows that one of the keys to longevity and good health is developing a habit of forgiveness and letting go of past hurts. It's hard work, but it's the kindest thing you can do for yourself -- and for others. Nobel Peace Prize-winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the global icon of forgiveness, partnered with his daughter, the Reverend Mpho Tutu, to write a manual on the art of forgiveness, The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World. Now Mpho Tutu comes to New York to give you the instructions on how to forgive, as well as scientific and moral reasons for doing so. She'll explain the universal four-step process of forgiveness that everyone can apply to their life, no matter how large or small the hurt. She'll affirm that healing does not lie in anger, it lies in empathy and love, knowing that by pardoning others we ultimately heal ourselves physically, emotionally and mentally. Learn More

This is a review for the Concert on Saturday, not the film as the title above seems to be inconsistent....but anyway...concert was overall very enjoyable. The selection of pieces performed was varied, most interesting and many were new to me. Keeping in mind that many of the singers were high school age, although not always a flawless performance, it was well executed. Not all solo voices were really strong enough for the music they were performing (Mozart's "Regina Coeli" in particular). Two highlights for me were Sydney Bell's "Flower of Beauty" and the Lauridsen (of course)--both just gorgeous works.
