What Gives Me Hope The smile of a child.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by -get my hands dirty.
What/who changed my life and why The book that changed my life is "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck, because it shows the difference between achieving and maintaining success.

The movie that changed my life is: Trading Places, with Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd. It drove home the point that different "classes" of people really do not understand each other at all.

The event that changed my life is having my eldest son wheeled into my room when he was a day old. I had not seen him before then, and when they left me alone with him, I wondered "What am I supposed to do now?"

I'll have to get back to you on the person....
