On The Road with iBuildBridges

– WRITTEN by Gary Wenet, Executive Producer and Co-Founder

I was just got dropped off at Ronald Reagan National AirPort by my Lyft driver Prajol. I had the honor of being his first customer since becoming a US citizen on Friday. He shared his story of having to escape perilous conditions for himself and his family in Nepal. His commitment to human rights had created serious personal and family risk.

I expressed my profound respect for his courage and his values and my belief that his example would be a source of inspiration to his children and future generations. I shared the story of how my grandparents courage and example has served as an inspiration for me.

In parting we agreed how important it is to live every day in a way that reflects the respect for human life and human rights.
