What Matters Most . . . .

Among the many things I have challenged myself, I resolve to be a positive, dedicated advocate for accelerating Net Zero design principles
and will work to accomplish this goal.  I believe people and families deserve it.  Don’t you?  I guess that depends on what matters most.
