I am lunching with Chris today in New York City, the one in the photo commanding your attention. I’m sure we will talk about Ted Kennedy, because politics is never far away. Maybe there’s a connection between my passion for teaching and my passion for the political world. Maybe it’s all about passion! Maybe that’s why Chris and I are so connected- PASSION!
I remember beginning with JFK, taking his inaugural speech into my skin, embedding it in my memory banks. I wasn’t aware then I would be moving to teaching. I was focused on more dazzling careers- politics, law…not teaching, but gradually, I moved away from the romantic glamour to teaching, where I could make a difference and find an outlet for my passion.
Teaching was my channel, but I began with JFK and the last of the trio will be remembered as health care moves along.
