My values were shaped at the dinner table where our family gathered every night. My parents’ favorite question to us was,
“So, what happened in the world today?”
They then challenged us to “change things for the better.” I learned the value of listening, of bringing people together, and have dedicated my life to meeting their challenge, to change things for the better, one community at a time.
