We need to teach our daughters to distinguish between…

A man who flatters her – and a man who compliments her
A man who spends money on her – and a man who invests in her
A man who views her as property – and a man who views her properly
A man who lusts after her – and a man who loves her
A man who believes he is God’s gift to women – and a man who remembers a woman was God’s gift to man

… And then teach our boys to be that kind of a man.”

 – unknown

That is the poem I hope to use as the intro to my first novel, Compliments from a Stranger.  And this is me and my grandfather, from my wedding almost 18 years ago. He certainly tried to instill these thoughts in me – they didn’t always take, but he certainly tried! 🙂
