More > Children was planned to take place in New York in 1991, inspired by a documentary 'As if it were Yesterday ' about Belgian Rescuers.

In my 433 page book, I explain that all cultures can learn from each other and my goal is to help people on each side of this cultural interaction because I have experienced the complexities and... More > misunderstandings of cultural differences and sensitivities/insensitivities and I want to help bridge the gaps between cultures.
