Life Skills with Emily Hurley-Wilkinson When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.
