    the joy of having Alice in your life (for all too short a time, unfortunately), they hold up a mirror so that we can see ourselves.

    Continuing to mis-gender someone. . .says more about you than it does about them.
    Treating others as we wish they would treat us starts with a simple acknowledgement: we are all human and deserving of kindness and respect.

    (P.S. re: Mr. Brandt--we all know people like him.  Such blatant disrespect for Alice,  and everyone one else at the meeting makes you want to ask him what's amiss in his life; he for damn sure shouldn't be inflicted on kids. I wish we as a country would value and pay teachers and counselors what they're worth so we could get rid of the dead wood.)
