Lea Brovedani


Lea is someone who I have been in contact with on and off for about 5 years I think. I believe we first started emailing when I lived in Canada. Since Lea is from Canada we had that one little connection among other things.

While I have felt very critical of many people who call themselves and who let others call them "experts" in EI, I don't feel as bothered by this in Lea's case. I am not really sure, to be honest, if she calls herself an expert, or if others are just doing that to promote their own services, seminars etc. But none of that is too important to me write now.

Today I got this email from Lea:


Dear friends,

Right now a tragedy is unfolding in the Middle East. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed or wounded in the bombings in Lebanon, Palestine and Israel and the death toll is rising every day. If the US, Syria or Iran get involved, there is a chance of a catastrophic larger war.   UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has called for an immediate ceasefire and the deployment of international troops to the Israel-Lebanon border, and been strongly supported by almost every world leader. This is the best proposal yet to stop the violence, but the US, the UK, and Israel have refused to accept it. I have just signed a petition calling on US President Bush, UK Prime Minister Blair, and Israeli Prime Minister Olmert to support Kofi Annan's proposal. If millions of people join this call, and we advertise our views in newspapers in the US, UK, and Israel, we can help pressure these leaders to stop the fighting.

Thank you



I had already written something about Lea in this aritle about parenting/E I and teen suicide but getting this email from her motivated me to write a bit more.

Thank you. Lea for speaking out, for your support of my work with teens and for sending me this email.
