We believe that there are people in the world who are extraordinary, ordinary human beings. These are not people whose accomplishments are remembered through centuries; rather, they are people who work to improve the world in small increments, one action or one person at a time. In Marjorie’s case, she worked, one person, one student, one child, at a time, fostering for them an education, a sense of worth and self-respect, and offering them a path forward in the world.

Marjorie lived in an era that was more difficult for women. She had the courage to step outside the familiar and into the global arena. She was often the only woman in global decision-making positions.

It was the very good fortune of Marj's children to experience her in action and to witness her goodness, tolerance, and the courage to speak out. We hope that her descendants can catch a glimpse of her sterling example and how to make a difference in the world.

Deborah and Charles were lucky enough to be the children of Marjorie. One of the last wishes of Charles was to complete this book. This book honors his wish.
