I was asked today by the Superior Court to mediate a family dispute between two family members.

After reading the case Commissioner Kim Knowles suggested that mediation could play a role.

The pain and anger was very clear and I applaud the judge for giving mediation a chance where the family members were encouraged to open and share feeling that were often raw in emotions.

I applaud the court for going the extra mile and being sensitive. I applaud the court of the support and value of family.

The mediation did occur and  settlement .. Perhaps the mediation planted seeds for future embracing and dialog.

Family unity and bonding is good for a community.
