My mom asked me an interesting question when I was discussing Tomorrow’s Roundtable with her today. She asked if I could remember moments when I was a child that I felt like I was empowered to have a voice. I started thinking about that, and you know, I can’t really pinpoint a moment. I can remember feeling loved, I can remember feeling listened to and even validated, but was there a moment where I felt like the ideas I had were important to the future of the world? No, not really.
