I can’t remain silent any longer! I have to do something! I would climb to the highest rooftop and yell, but someone else would own it and there would be liability issues. I could Blog or use Twitter, but I hope more people than just the tech-savvy would hear my cry. So I have chosen an old reliable alternative of putting my message into print. It is my hope that those who have eyes to see, ears to hear, or scissors to cut out an article and stick it on a wall somewhere, will do so.
My message is actually a couple of questions. As an etiquette consultant, I have worked with colleges, universities, businesses, corporations, children, youth programs, women-to-work programs, alternative education programs. I’ve worked with corporate executives, farmers, car dealers, architects, engineers, medical professionals, lumber brokers, lobbyists and religious leaders. I’ve also been out and about as a teacher, wife, sister, mother, and friend. It is these varied experiences that compel me to think the questions that beg expression: People, what are we doing to ourselves? What are we doing to each other?
