Why We Do…

“Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world. Work without love is slavery.” Mother Theresa The dichotomy of my work is that I teach people, if necessary to […]
