Zoe WeilMany years ago I picked up a book called, ‘Above All Be Kind’. This was during a time when I was raising my children. I’m still raising my children, they’re older now. This book is raising a humane child in challenging times and it’s by Zoe Weil. Today, I have across the microphone from me, Zoe Weil, so it’s pretty great that I’ve actually been able to make this loop come full circle.
