Bob Carlson reflects on his year at the helm of the 400,000-member association during remarks to the House of Delegates at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco on Monday, Aug. 12.
Invoking the host of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, Carlson recounts Fred Rogers’ mother’s advice during scary times. She advised him to “look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
Carlson praises lawyers who stand up to help others in the face of natural disasters, attacks on the judiciary, turmoil at the border, political partisanship and wellness issues.
