Dear poets, parents, parent-poets and parents of young poets! It was such a pleasure for me to participate recently in the Global Creative Camp for Muslim Kids, hosted by my friend and author Amin Aaser of Noor Kids. Brother Amin, such a special mentor to youth, lead us through a delightful discussion about the power of journal writing, songwriting and choosing our words wisely while expressing ourselves. The highlight of our time together, with over 450 youth from around the world, was hearing the poem participants wrote collectively about their mothers. Their heartfelt words brought me to tears! For families who were unable to attend the on-line gathering, please click the video link below to enjoy the full one hour interview. To Amin, the Noor Kids team and all the “campers” who attended ~ Thank you for such a lovely time.
