Victor Rivas Rivers is a veteran film and television star, best-selling author, renowned advocate for violence prevention, and the first Cuban-born football player to land a tryout with the Miami Dolphins. He has achieved extraordinary success in numerous arenas. But given his violent upbringing, few of those achievements were ever likely.

This week’s questions comes from Stacy and she says:
I’m helping my elderly Mom through some health challenges right now and there’s a lot of anxiety around it all (for both of us). And she’s not the most expressive or communicative person, but when I talk with her she always tells me that what I say is exactly what she needed.
