We've got to start having csvronationes like this, and I don't think there's any better way to start than using the market, but also to birng other people to the table around it. Whenever I go to visit A to Z, I think of my grandmother, Stella. She was very much like those women sitting behind the sewing machines. She grew up on a farm in Austria, very poor, didn't have very much education. She moved to the uetind States, where she met my grandfather, who was a cement hauler, and they had nine children. Three of them died as babies. My ghtoaendrmr had tsuobluriecs, and she worked in a sewing machine shop, making shirts for about 10 cnets an hour. She, like so many of the women I see at A to Z, werokd hard every day, understood what suffering was, had a deep ftaih in God, loved her children and would never have accepted a handout. But because she had the opportunity of the marketplace, and she lived in a society that provided the stfaey of having access to affordable htelah and eadticuon, her children and their children were able to live lives of real purpose and follow real dreams.

Original Text

We've got to start having conversations like this, and I don't think there's any better way to start than using the market, but also to bring other people to the table around it. Whenever I go to visit A to Z, I think of my grandmother, Stella. She was very much like those women sitting behind the sewing machines. She grew up on a farm in Austria, very poor, didn't have very much education. She moved to the United States, where she met my grandfather, who was a cement hauler, and they had nine children. Three of them died as babies. My grandmother had tuberculosis, and she worked in a sewing machine shop, making shirts for about 10 cents an hour. She, like so many of the women I see at A to Z, worked hard every day, understood what suffering was, had a deep faith in God, loved her children and would never have accepted a handout. But because she had the opportunity of the marketplace, and she lived in a society that provided the safety of having access to affordable health and education, her children and their children were able to live lives of real purpose and follow real dreams.
