She calls out to us all to become more spiritually aware and active - to move beyond the stark reality of our everyday lives and to open to divine inspiration and intervention. Rather than engage in apathy as we witness the world's turmoil, we must all become active agents in creating a safe and abundant world for our children, and the generations to come.
