RESPECT: In our Relationships, Parenting and Community

This week we are joined by Margaret Lacson-Ecarma, whose experience you will hear is as diverse as it gets, ranging from producing the nightly news to working with the white house administration and owning her own business. When I met Margaret she was speaking to the Asian Business Collective for Women about RESPECT, in a professional sense. I knew that I wanted her and I to revisit respect and how it really looks in the private parts of our lives, between parent and child, spouse to spouse, and stranger to stranger. One of the aspects of respect is solidarity, and how we should always remember we are all one. In the world today, as people are feeling the pains of others through social media and the news, I am thrilled to give you this unique conversation about the components of respect and how to live a fulfilling peaceful life.

This world of ours... must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.
— Dwight D. Eisenhower
