On a personal level, Roger's personal conviction is that "every person is worth understanding", and that trust can be created between individuals by interacting, listening, and sharing lessons that life has taught us. This led him to write a book titled "Finding Purpose and Joy, It's a Journey" and to follow through on his convictions by organizing and conducting a "finding purpose and joy' life mentoring program.
