I believe that if we each do our part and act  responsibly, if we strive to grow in all the ways we can, then we can succeed in improving ourselves, in becoming better people, be better parents or sons and daughters, and better friends to one another.

That’s my goal, to keep upping my understanding of people — and of myself as well. Especially now that I’m a parent, I have a whole new perspective on what’s important in life, and a new set of reasons to continue to grow and flourish. It is my wish for you, as well, and I hope that the books I write and the work I do is truly serving to mankind.
