Lieutenant-General to speak to parents

Lieutenant-General The Honourable Romeo A. Dallaire will be the presenter at the next Parents as Partners session.

Date: Sunday, January 25, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Location: Fantasyland Hotel
West Edmonton Mall

Lieutenant-General Dallaire has requested that, in lieu of his usual speaking fee, attendees at the parent event be asked for monetary donations in aid of Rwanda. This is a unique opportunity for Edmonton Public parents and the address will likely include the importance of raising children to have a global perspective.

I pulled this from Lieutenant-General Dallaire's website:

Public Speaking Romeo Dallaire's presentations discuss leadership and conflict resolution, illustrated with stories of his own experiences. He inspires listeners to address the ethical and moral issues in conflicts and insists that governments put humanity above political and economic interests.

Client Testimonials "Through all your trials and sorrows, you have come to exemplify the greatest ideals to which we can aspire. You move us to come together and express our common humanity...you have made us all more human, more feeling, more emotionally attached to people and situations half a world away. We know one thing - you will not quit - and this in itself is a reason for all of us to remain hopeful, to keep looking for reasons for optimism."
