When the valedictorian of my daughter's high school class was asked what his greatest lesson from high school was, he said, "The amount of people we uplift when someone in a community does something outstanding, or the amount of people we hurt when someone in a community does something disappointing, are both greater than we anticipate. This awareness and sensitivity are something I hope to sharpen and carry with me in the new communities. I will be a part of moving forward."--Siddharth Yarlagadda
Be aware of your surroundings and sensitive to the needs of others. When given the opportunity to lift someone up, do it to the best of your ability. When given the opportunity to hurt someone, walk away. The consequences for each are always greater than we can imagine.
