At my Southern Maryland college, I double majored in English and psychology, and a couple of years later, in graduate school in central England, I studied theology with a focus on ethics.
En route to these degrees, I wrote a lot–particularly about helping others. I recently re-read the sampling of papers below, and was struck by how, beneath and between the philosophical jargon, such a pure, simple message resonated:
