I have never regretted being kind.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou

How do I treat people? How do you? One of my mentors, Madhu Suri Prakash, said, “Peter. I have never regretted being kind.”  I can’t claim to always be, but I do my best, especially as an elected official. There, in a seat with power and authority, we aren’t just ourselves. We are there for other people as their faces, voices, ears, and decisions. Our conduct matters.
