The Leader’s Dilemma

Channel surfing can have its serendipitous moments, and I was the benefit of two of them this week. Each had strikingly different content. One of them showcased the best of our American society; the other, the worst (yes, it feels like we’ve seen a lot of that lately). What follows below is the tale of two leaders. Despite the stark differences, I believe there is reason for hope, and we can all participate!

It is a funny thing about growing up. Your relatives are around when you are born, so you accept their presence for the rest of your life – just like you accept the tree in your front yard. They’re just there. Until they are not. Our rocket man was my Uncle Ellsworth Brunais, an engineer for NASA and Chrysler, who led the way in BEING inclusive rather than talking about it.
