I was reflecting upon the sacrifice of relatives, friends and unknown heroes whose lives are the joint guarantors of my liberty, and I was contemplating a suitable tribute for The Journey, when I ran into James Tate, my guest on a previous show. “Did you see my note?” he greeted, with such enormous excitement and anxiety, I hesitated to admit I hadn’t.
Taking a meaningful stance against bullying, James Tate joins me on the journey, where we meet fascinating people with novel solutions to life’s tricky problems. He has awakened me to a few realties often taken for granted.
