Doris Kearns Goodwin delighted the audience with historical stories, facts and antidotes centered around Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt with reflections for current President Donald Trump. From self-reflection, staying connected to the people served, and the importance of resting & shaking off anxiety, Ms. Goodwin highlighted how these previous presidents conquered themselves and responded to adversity.  She concluded with underscoring the importance of ‘telling the stories of our lives’ and appreciating the history that underpins every story.
