Breaking down the Generational Walls
This week my father sent our staff an article he wrote, lamenting how his and his father’s generations had dishonored their children’s feelings. The phrase, “For crying out loud!” he said, summed it up. As I read, another phrase from that era came to mind: “Because I said so!” Sometimes we deserved the rebuke.
Reflect, Clean, Move Forward
