“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

Dr. Seuss, in The Lorax

Among the skills introduced to our children during their early years, reading, writing, and ‘rithmatic as we called it, took top billing. The nightly bedtime story is still an integral part of many family rituals, including my grandchildren.

There probably isn’t a family that doesn’t have at least a few choice Dr. Seuss books that haven’t seen some considerable wear over the years.

Beyond the funny characters and rhyming words, there was almost always a life lesson in those pages to inspire and guide our little ones to be good people and do their part to help and serve others.

  1. This Dr. Suess quote has so much meaning for leaders today who are faced when so many challenges coming out of Covid. It really is as simple as that, if we don’t care to change it, nothing will get better. Thanks Barry for the gut check for all of us!
