Tonight, Dr. Jane Goodall came and gave a wonderfully inspiring speech to the Concordia University community. I didn’t want to be that person who would take an asshole photo of her while she was speaking….
This night was wonderful for many reasons. One: I am so happy that I was aware of this and that I told one of my closest friends, Nicole, about it. She’s incredibly involved in environmental issues and has a passion for monkeys, apes and obviously Dr. Jane Goodall. It makes me so giddy to see her so happy.
Two: I have never been so genuinely inspired and hopeful. Watching Dr. Goodall and listening to her, her passion, her compassion, her devotion and sense of humour, her spirit, just everything about her was captivating. I cried tears of joy and of sorrow, and had a fantastic time. I like spending Friday nights like this.
I got to meet her and get a photo with her which I’m sure will be up here in a couple of weeks once I receive it. If you have the chance, look up her work, her books, or just her. She’s incredibly inspiring and motivating.
