Pastoral Ponderings: Leaders voice their purposes

The Rev. George R. Ames

Attorney Ryan J. Dymek: “If you find what motivates you, then all the hard work and effort does not seem like work at all, it is a purpose. We were all put here for a purpose; finding that purpose is the hardest part of life.”

Attorney Henry E. Floyd Jr.: “I take pride in fighting for what’s right, whether it’s fighting for one individual to get back to enjoying a better quality of life after a life-altering injury or fighting for diversity and inclusion in our law firms and on the bench.”

Attorney Darryl L. Tarver: “Each year I think about new and different ways to give back and to inspire others. To me, that is an important part of being a lawyer; making society more just for all.”

Attorney Michelle Bradford: “I always made the effort to be respectful of the people I came into contact with, whether they were victims, witnesses or defendants, and not the judge them based on their current circumstances or their past struggles.”

Attorney Dana Brooks: “I have dedicated my career to providing a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Helping others is what brings me the most joy.”

Attorney Benjamin H. Carney: “The solution to the problems we see in our increasingly impersonal society is fundamentally to engage, in person, with real people in our community and to work toward the common good.”

Attorney Marylin Pierre: “I love to help people enforce their rights, understand their responsibilities and find their place in the community.”

Attorney David E. Ralph: “You never really know how your actions, big or small, impact your community or society at large.”

Some words are purpose; fighting for what is right, diversity, inclusion, giving back, inspiring others, making society more just for all, respectful of people, not to judge people on their current circumstances or past struggles; providing a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves, work toward the common good, help people enforce their rights, understand their responsibilities, find their place in the community or society at large.
God Bless
