Hey, Friends! Just thinking: I'd really like to hear us all start using the word "RESPECTFUL" at the same time we use "Progressive." We do need to distinguish our Intention (bottom line, it IS Respect) as well as our familiar designation of Progressive. I think that will (1) Raise us ALL up to call ourselves & our goals "Respectful" & (2) Force the "others" to have to Respond to that courageous valor statement!! I LOVE IT!! Use in Peaceful & Dignified Self-Respect -- & VICTORY!!! Thank you!
