These days, with so many avenues of "talk" (including this blog), we are going through an unparalleled era of free expression. But with this exponential explosion of expression comes the almost immediate counter-attack of disbelief.
Last week, I was the honouree for a major fundraiser by the Canadian Hadassah-WIZO organization. In my reflective time after the event, I sat wondering about the real meaning of the word "honour." The plaques, kind words and other souvenirs of one's "night" are fond keepsakes...but don't reflect what a true honour is.
