    What can we do to learn from Michael’s experience and how do we move forward from it?

    We continue part two of this very important conversation with Michael Brown.  In part two, we focus the conversation on how to move forward and how we can, as a society, learn to acknowledge  without minimizing a situation. What is he teaching his sons? What should we be teaching our children? As business owners what can we do? What example can we set? These are just a few of the questions we can ask ourselves in order to be part of the change to move forward.
