Nuns are Women of Conscience and Courage
|Cokie Roberts speaks at St. Ambrose Univ.in Davenport, Iowa.|
|A selfie with Cokie. She said it was her first!|
She gave a talk entitled "Nuns in American History - Women of Conscience and Courage," in which she reflected on just a few of the many orders of religious who have defied the odds and made impacts on U.S. history never seen in history books. There was a good deal of personal stories too and her sense of humor had me in tears.
Here's a 1:10 minute video clip with Cokie talking about CHMs.

Cokie is genuinely a nice person. She was so very gracious to visit the Humility of Mary Center, share breakfast with the retired sisters who live there and to pose for a selfie with me!
