“Everybody is a story. When I was a child, people sat around kitchen tables and told their stories. We don't do that so much anymore.

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals.

“One of the most important things you can do on this earth is to let people know they are not alone.”
