Dear Seeds in Egypt,
You have all been in my thoughts over the last week, and in the thoughts of your fellow Seeds around the world. I hope you and your families are safe.
We have all been watching closely as developments have unfolded, and while communication has been difficult, our staff are working on getting in touch with all of you.
Please let us know how you are doing when you can, and know that you will continue to be in our thoughts.
We talk a lot about leadership at Seeds of Peace. This is a pivotal moment in Egypt’s history, requiring true leadership. As tensions increase, I trust you will remember that respect and communication are signs of true leadership. I hope you are able to listen, hear opinions that are different than your own, and take responsible action.
I also hope that you will reach out to and support each other during these difficult and historic times. Please know that everyone in the Seeds of Peace family is here for you, worried about you, and hopeful that Egypt will emerge from this strong and united.
With love and respect,
Leslie Adelson Lewin
