Maggie grew up in a raucous household with 8 brothers and 1 sister. Learning to live in community, in harmony with the needs of others was a great foundation for a philosophy of service and compassion for all aspects of being human. It is possible for us to love and respect one another and our unique contributions to our family, local and global communities. We laughed, we fought, we had many conflicts but as my eldest brother said, "you could be as mad as you wanted at one or the other of our siblings, but at the end of the day, you still had to sit next to them at the dinner table." Acknowledging our differences, reconciling and learning to put aside what keeps us apart, helped to build deep, lasting relationships in the knowledge that no matter what we will be there for one another.
