my mother was always a friend

and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.”

“Sixty-five percent of Americans don’t have the conversation with their children.
So you’re sending off boys and girls off to college, off to high school, off to wherever they go,

How to respect a woman.
How do you respect yourself?”
