What is a place that shaped you, and how does it give you purpose?

Home. My upbringing on Chicago’s West Side and frequent childhood visits to my ancestral home in Prairie Mississippi remind me of the collective power of family and community and renew my purpose in seeking that same loving environment for all children.
