To Our Readers

I read an account some time ago of a family that came together for a reunion. The get-together got off to a great start. Lots of hugs and handshakes and good conversation. At some point during the day, however, with most of them gathered in a circle still catching up on each other's lives, the subject of the conversation turned to that of being shown appreciation.

One family member mentioned, in a slightly frustrated tone, that his supervisor (who happened to be a relative) never had anything good to say about his work. Another family member chimed in with a similar comment. Then another. Before long, the conversation turned bitter. Everyone was complaining. Once or twice someone's complaint burst out like hot lava, releasing some deeply-held anger that apparently had been bubbling below the surface.
