Calgary, Jan. 4, 2015--As a direct result of our October 3&4th, 2014 conference, four members of Initiatives of Change in Calgary were asked to share their stories of change at the “Wings of Change” Conference held in Calgary on Sunday, January 4th, 2015 organized by Dr. Frank Menezes.
The attack on the Paris based satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has left 12 people dead and the trail of destruction that has been left behind is colossal. The repercussion of their brutal and terrorist attack will reverberate in the hearts of people for decades. This is a despicable act of cowardice and grotesque attack on all our freedom.
Do we have freedom to offend? To belittle, to mock, to insult? Yes, we do, here in Britain, but we must accept the possible consequences of our actions. That’s what’s happened in Paris.
Like so many of us, I have been horrified by the recent events that have unfolded in France last week', writes Barbara Down. 'Nearly every day we see on our TV screens violent conflict around the rest of the world, but it has now become more evident as a reality here in Europe too. I fear for our future, wondering where we have gone wrong, that has resulted in people who were born and grew up here hating the system and presumably 'us' so much that they are willing to kill and even die for their cause.'

On a glorious, sun-caressed autumn day in early November 2014, Catherine Graham, Duchess of Montrose, having “slipped the surly bonds of earth,” as her favourite poem expressed it, was laid to rest after a funeral service in the Scottish village of Drymen.
On 10 November, the Beyond Forgiving film was screened at SOAS University (School of Oriental and African Studies), a leading institution in London for the study of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
