I love the succinct and basic truth of this article :)
Imagine how different our world would be if everyone considered the impact of their words and actions on others ... Ultimately, we all need to take responsibility for our own actions regardless of what others do, but no one is perfect. We all make mistakes and have bad days, its what we do 'afterwards' that will define the impact of that mistake. If others don't respect this premise, then it will say a lot more about them, then it does about you. Love and hugs to all, keep up the awesome and valuable work folks xxx

Excellent. Very good for reflecting with colleagues.
Agree with Robert, can also be connected with faith and forgiveness.

I like this post. This can certainly be connected to faith and forgiveness as well. Helping facilitate internal rest/peace is one of the biggest gifts we can give out residents. -Katie-
