That's how it all started. We began planning a vegetarian dinner for the Super Boys of the Coral Gables Fire Department. We had 13 wonderful guys with large appetites.
We served stuffed shells, salad, toasted parmesan bread and chocolate tofu mousse. It was a great experience even if we didn't meditate. Next time guys, we will meditate in between bites, including the paramedics. No joke, you all deserve a Very Big Thank You for a job well done by all of you 365 days of the year. This was just a small way to say thanks. One of the Super Boys told me that in 20 plus years only 3 people had done this for them. I asked him why he thought that was. He believes that is because when things so catastrophic happen to someone they don't want to remember them. They want to forget the incident.
Also, thanks Tim for the flowers you hand picked and arranged. Special thanks to Don the photographer. A BIG OM SHANTI to all of you. (Om Shanti means I am Peace).
It's all about love and service. The Super Boys have a love for humankind and a passion to serve in time of crisis. The planning committee has that same love for a special type of hunger which feeds the soul. Then they take that hunger and serve. When you put all of them together in one room it's a great vibe.
