Sometimes making a difference is so much work you just want to forget about it. One step could be watching how we speak. I listen when I go to the post office or stand in line at the grocery store. Cell phone calls proliferate at those places, and the conversations I overhear are many and varied. What surprises me is that there are no words of support. Instead of kind, loving words, most of what I hear is angry sounding... "he said/she said/do you know what he/she did? Well, let me tell you." I wonder what would happen if words like, " how can I help," ~ "what would you like me to do," ~ "I know you’ll handle this in your usual competent way," were used instead. I’m using helpful words more often. I hope you are, too.
