"The important questions facing our society today are not republican or democrat, liberal or conservative, religious or secular. They are compassion or greed, domination or empathy, justice or abuse. I myself stand for compassion, empathy, and justice. I don't see much of that in the halls of power and avarice, but I see plenty of it in my neighborhood, genuine acts of kindness and caring. Power and money corrupts while humility and gratitude enobles."
