The great silent grandmother gathering: a story for anyone who thinks she can't

Comments  Summary

Summary: The Great Silent Grandmother Gathering "On a buffety, blustery early summer day, when the news was bad and the sky turned yellow, a strange thing happened in the town where I live." So begins this moving and enchanting story of two grandmothers who, by standing in the park all day long-"not speaking, not looking at squirrels, not munching on coconut candy"-soon have everyone in town talking. What are they doing? A young girl informs the stumped observers shyly. "They're saving the world." These simple acts and words have an enormous impact on the town and soon on towns all over the world. At a time when the news is bad and many people feel powerless, this inspiring story tells of two women who do something so simple that at first no one takes them seriously, but soon, when they are joined by other women, and then many other women, their simple act of caring has the power to transform the world. Together, these women discover great things are possible-even, and especially, peace.
