Thank you, Gene
Thank for being you. When you opened the door of your house to me seven years ago, you ushered me into a way of being that has kept inspiring me ever since. You had travelled to Seattle in the morning to do work for the Global Child Nutrition Foundation, and now, back home on your beloved Whidbey, you were spending the afternoon to share your reflections about life and leadership for a project I was working on. I thought we’d be done in 90 minutes, instead, our visit turned into an intense four-hour interview. You told part of your story, including a reflection on having only animal crackers to share with malnourished children you met in a village in Tunisia.
