    i am very interested in hearing more….i really enjoyed learning but got cut off just when it was getting really informative & inspiring in a positive peaceful way. This kind of dialogue would really help the work we are trying to do for the people. Please do not allow our people to be cut-off & harrassed for wanting to dialogue and work on practical solutions.

      Also this is not posting the correct time I am leaving this and my previous comment at 8:20 pm the night of the event and i have been trying to participate since around 7:00 pm.

    Hi there…
    I did enjoy your efforts as a team to provide this experience to us. I hope that the bugs will get worked out and the dialogue will continue. I really like the fact that everyone is welcome in the dialogue. Toward increased understanding within our big family of human beings. 🙂

    This forum was…really good- to say the least. Got me thinking about a lot of things. It amazes me (similar to the way that supernovas amaze me) that the Idle No More movement has maintained such a vast, yet strong and committed following, and still continues to grow. Is there any movement comparable?
