Isn't it wonderful when somebody takes a big thing that you're feeling and distills it down into one perfect sentence? Many thanks to Supersister Jen Lemen for this recent quote, taken from a conversation with her son Carter:
Respect is when someone listens to you very deeply and takes you seriously and believes you when you say what's important to you.
That is exactly what I think is at the core of respect. Thanks, Jen.
