Linda Ragsdale was in the restaurant of the Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai when terrorists attacked on November 27, 2008. The Nashville artist and teacher was one of many who were shot but one of few who survived.
A friend in the FBI Nashville Citizens Academy Alumni Association recommended that I invite Linda to speak to the FBI Knoxville Citizens Academy Alumni Association. Linda spoke to us about the attack and about how she now spreads a message of peace through The Peace Dragon project.
Linda is a dynamic and captivating speaker. I had the opportunity to visit with her after the meeting over coffee and again the next day when I interviewed her for the public affairs radio program that airs on the Journal Broadcast Group stations.
I don’t want to write too much about Linda. Instead, I’d rather that you hear her yourself. You can listen to our interview or download it at the podcast link below.
