Guest 2: If anyone can talk to the idea that we can change course in our lives it is Donna Carol Voss. It is an understatement to describe Donna Voss’s life experience as eclectic. She is a Berkeley grad, a former pagan, a stay-at-home mom, mother to three adopted siblings, a devout Mormon, and an author whose opinions have been widely read in the Blaze, Huff Po, and the Federalist as well as in her books. Clearly a study in extremes, she is a fifty-something homemaker who loves rap music, outrageously expensive shoes, and people who own their flaws and call her on hers.
If we are to leave this planet a better place, we must pass the best of human values on to our children. This was part of her discovery as Donna traveled from Pagan to parent. Despite all the chatter about the decline of America; the fact is, that on this planet, as bad as it gets here in America, we still set the standard for a functional free society, a legacy that we want to pass on to our kids. That is critical to ourselves, and to the world as a whole.
