  1. Hi Tina,

    I always enjoy your Friday Link Pack…a wonderful way to explore and kick off the weekend.

    Thank you for posting “Check This Box If You’re a Good Person”. I infrequently post things to LinkedIn because many subjects have been through the mill before—they are helpful, but they’ve been presented before. This one was refreshing, humbling and human. Important these days, and I was happy to share it.

    Have a great weekend!
