Listening, Life and Death
Can the ability to listen make the difference between life and death?
Consider this true story: Tina Meier's daughter, Megan, was in extreme emotional pain one day. She tried to get help from her mother. But her mother felt a greater need to tell Megan what to do than to simply listen.
Please watch this video and think about whether it might have saved Megan's life if the mother had just listened.
Notice also that the mother confuses "listening" with "obeying" when she says, "I was upset that she didn't listen to me and sign off when I told her to."
