“Every negative headline in the papers–murder, stealing, drug abuse and even marital infidelity–are all extremely bad manners: lack of respect for others… lack of respect for their property… and lack of respect for oneself. Our society doesn’t need more laws and gun control… we need SELF CONTROL! Our society needs to decide if they will choose to be controlled internally by their conscience or externally by a police officer on every corner. It’s our choice.”
“Self Control is a very wonderful thing. It means you have the ability to CHOOSE to do the right thing. That’s FREEDOM!” (exerpt From Judi’s book, Manners Matter & Character Counts)
