In the darkest of times, and there were many, I could never look out at so many wonderful people, engage them in laughter and give-and-take, without walking from the room filled with wonder at the human spirit. They could do anything! Anything! And so can everyone, everywhere, if our minds are open enough, our hearts warm enough, and our spirits strong enough to conceive of institutions that enable us to do so.
