Season of mothers and fathers

Standard

As we’re approaching that time of year where mother’s day and father’s day are nestled together, I find myself thinking about my parents: how they shaped me, the goals and values they taught me, and what the right way to be in the world is.

I feel so fortunate to have grown up with people who valued other people. They demonstrated how important it was to look out for other humans, and to stand up for what is right, whether creating programs for infants with seeking justice for a minority professor who was not treated fairly.

I was born in the mid-1960s into a white, middle- to upper-middle-class family. Professional and educated. However, I am proud to say that my family firmly believed in equality and civil rights.

What I learned from my upbringing is that is is important to care about whatever it is you do. Always stand up for Justice.
