Treat Everyone the Same

Another person came by my table and looked at the book.

"What is the right thing?" she asked.

"Treating everyone the same and treating them well," I said.

"I'm glad you added that about treating them well," she joked.

"Yes, but I think I'd rather have treating them all the same even more than treating them well."

"Hmmm," she said. "It's about teamwork then, that's what everybody talks about."

"Yes," I said.

But when I thought about it later, it occurred to me that it's not about teamwork. It makes teamwork easy, yes, but it's not about that. It's about:

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
take care, tcb
a little respect
whoa, babe
a little respect
Aretha Franklin

and

COMPASSION
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
The Dalai Lama
