I strongly believe, therefore, that one of our greatest responsibilities to the people who are in our daily lives is to make it safe to speak. It’s become one of my deepest fascinations with people-watching, to see how many people crave honesty and respect and yet make it impossible for those very attributes to be voiced in their presence. It’s not enough to say that honesty and respect is what we want to hear. It has to be made possible and kept sacrosanct in every possible future from then on.
