About a year after my mother died, a teacher questioned me about who she was. When I finally gave her enough information to identity my mother, the teacher said " Oh! You mean that *kind* woman! " I thought "what a great commentary on a person's life," and resolved to try to live so that could be said about me. Through a lifetime of working with disadvantaged people, I have come to believe kindness may be the most important quality of all.
