Amber’s Message: The spirit of the Star Raft

This was Amber’s message to a gathering of families, self-advocates and professionals in Augusta, Maine.  It was her first keynote address!

Amber

It’s about love. About always you and I together. I love you. I am glad for you.
I know about your interest in enveloping each other with kindness and warm thoughts.

I wish to convey to you a blessing for a quiet afternoon to think softly about this life we are inhabiting together.
Around you are people of all descriptions and interests – angels on this earth – like the faces of children who have always banished hunger.

I came here today knowing that you would be looking out for ways of bringing about justice in our world.
When all is said and over, speak your truth with authority.  Your ideas, your interests will blossom into beautiful lives.

 

– Amber Svingen, 1997
