Leo Buscaglia has taught us all the meaning of love, laughter,
joy and involvement with life, through his books, his lectures,
and his example. He made us look at ourselves in wonderment and
care, yet teaching us never to take ourselves so seriously that
we fail to reach out to each other while there is time to do so.
One of my favorite "Leo" stories is his
commentary on the time we humans take to brush our teeth, fix
our hair, pick out the right out-fit, and how little time we
take to move towards one another, in love, while we can. And,
how afraid we all remain of being touched and reaching out to
What are we holding onto, what are we so
afraid of, he asked us? Why is LOVE not a major requirement in
every university as it is the single most volatile concern of
every person on the face of the earth? People spend far more
time on those things which pass away quickly, than on the one
thing that does last, LOVE.
Leo's FELICE FOUNDATION, based in Nevada, has
provided seed funding, for numerous worthy projects over the
past many years. Projects that encourage "giving, beyond self."
One of the first grants, a much-needed sign of encouragement,
that was given to Renaissance Enterprises, came from The Felice
Foundation, enabling us to provide many enrichment programs for
senior's living in care facilities throughout the country, thank
you, Leo, for that, and thank you for years of personal
encouragement you gave so freely. We need you, more than ever.
