The Heart of Houston includes an introduction by Dr. Stephen L.
Klineberg, Rice University sociology professor and co-director of the
Kinder Institute for Urban Research about the ways Houston exemplifies
this philosophy. Twenty essays come from every sector: business,
commerce, education, medicine—and many more. They include religious
leaders like Rabbi Samuel Karff, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Beth
Israel and faculty member at the McGovern Center for Humanities and
Ethics at the University of Texas Medical School; civic and literacy
champions like former first lady of Houston, Andrea White; and other
Houstonians whose impact emanates from their service to others. Leading
by example, they have helped Houston preserve a strong sense of
community, philanthropy, and positive energy as it has grown from a
small Southern town to a thriving, international metropolis. They
exemplify the idea that the world is not about I or you but the togetherness of we.
