It was most wonderful to have the support of colleagues, family, and friends. I left the ceremony feeling inspired by the good things that are happening throughout the world and wanting to do more.
Below are my remarks -- I wanted to issue a call to action for all of us. This day wasn't really about me or the other awardees. It was about the efforts of many who serve so diligently for good. It was about the students of Nepal who welcomed me and my crazy ways so graciously and with energetic minds.
May we all keep trying to make the world a little better.
