Sundays have always been a time for relaxation and reflection for me. Yes, there’s the looming shadow ofGrapes next week and all the responsibility it will bring, but there’s a stillness and sanctity in the calm before the storm. 

I’ve been challenged by Matthew to read The Grapes of Wrath, and so I’m sitting down to do just that. For Matthew, this was the book that inspired him to practice immigration law, but more importantly to fight for the rights of the downtrodden. So I’m curious, what things, be they books, movies, professors, friends, or just personal experiences, have inspired you the most? Why do you do what you do, whatever that may be?
