This past week the Huntsman family dedicated the new expansion to the Huntsman Cancer Center. Fifteen years ago, this world class facility was nothing more than one man's dream. And today, because of that one man's ambition, the facility is blessing the lives of countless individuals.
As some citizens talk of taking back Wall Street, I fear that ambition may become confused with its evil cousin greed. It is individuals with ambition that move this world forward, and it is greed that can destroy it.
Society should have at it with CEOs and politicians who simply line their pockets and egos with undue rewards. However, in this time of change, we need to clearly distinguish between greed and ambition.
