Sherry Kappel, I know it comes as no surprise to you that this is the same thing I’ve been saying for the last few years, except for the flinging peas part: treat others with respect and actively listening. I say because it works. I’ve seen it work, more times than I recall. In doing that, the love will come and even rub off on one another.
I’m going to have to check out your school shooting essays. Thanks for the heads-up! And your time.
