Yesterday was the International Day of Awesomeness, but it inspired me to think that we may be well-served by a Day of Awareness. With so much naysaying, criticism, and divisiveness fluttering about, I present one of my lines from my 2019 book.


“I am calling for uncommon decency.

Respect that comes from awareness.”

― Cathy Burnham Martin, author
