My friend Liz, a founder of the peace-building non-profit called What Better Looks Like, always says, "Pay attention to the stories you gravitate towards most." When Covid first effected my life, my full time job was temporarily suspended because we were deemed nonessential. My first week of unemployment was spent with the Lord of the Rings, Two Towers and Return of the King on repeat while I processed sudden change and uncertainty. I gravitate to this series because I am inspired by three main themes: Leadership can be found in the most unassuming places, Courage is necessary to defend the kindest and most honorable aspects of human nature, and even the smallest person can change the change the course of the future.
