"Innovation and technology have overcome many of the limits of time and space, and will continue to do so in ways that we cannot imagine.
"How does one prepare for the future? While change is constant, the building blocks of life, particularly the abundant life, are also constant: kindness, humor, generosity, well being, friendship, integrity, and all other virtues never faileth.
