Hallowing the Ordinary. An Acceptance Speech in the Form of a Love Letter: The Omer C. Stewart Memorial Award

Howard F. Stein

I feel honored, pleased, grateful, downright thrilled! Savor this moment with me. It is yours as well as mine. It is holy. It is meant to elevate the ordinary into the sacred. I regard the Omer Stewart Award as a gift, not as a piece of personal property. Now, I do not refuse it and give it back; I do not return it to you. But I wish to recognize it and this moment in our history for what it is, and who all it represents. It is a sacred trust, Omer Stewart’s medicine bundle.
