I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous… In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or dehumanized… If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.
