Copenhagen? One day, I’ll do a story about it…
by Franke James
I say, “I flew all the way from Canada…”
And then commuted from Sweden to Copenhagen.
Many people were cynical.
And yet, Danes opened their homes to strangers.
3,178 strangers were hosted through New Life Copenhagen.

Nice Franke! And funny too ;-)
All the best to you and the planet.
Let’s stay in touch.
It’s hard not to be a little cynical, isn’t it?
But in the end, it will be you and me that make up the sum of us. And we will save us. Just like we were always going to.
Does that make sense? ;-)
Thanks for your comment! I love what Martin Rosengaard from New Life Copenhagen says in the quick video clip about the belief in humanity carrying us forward — and that we have to get to work.
As you say, it’s about each of us working together to make change happen — and not having blind faith that the politicians will do the right thing.
I’m working on the 2nd part of this essay and it should be live soon…
