Are You Listening?

Remember this movie? There was a lot of meat in the message of acceptance of others, but what I remember most was this scene, the way that Carol completely hears and listens to Simon. There is a difference, you know. She pulled the car off the road in order to absorb the words and the emotion, and she didn’t allow any distractions, even when they worked so hard to take over. What a gift to give someone: your undivided attention when they are sharing their story.

I want to continue to be struck by this scene, and show this kind of respect to others. It’s as good as it gets here on earth.
