I grew up in the Boston area. For me it meant hating the Yankees. The Yankees were the evil empire. I wasn’t born with this bias, I learned it. It’s the way it is with all biases, we learn them. Some biases are silly and foolish. Others, are harmful to ourselves and those toward whom we are biased. If we have the wisdom and courage we can recognize our biases and see them for what they are. It takes courage to admit that a bias is wrong. It takes even greater courage to change.

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
