  1. Thanks, Jill. I’m glad you liked it.

    My friend, Peter Salem, the executive director of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, said that this list of words reminded him of what the Purdue basketball team decided to do this season to use “their sporting platform to push values they believe make the world a bit better … [and] help to mend a splintering country.”
