Deciding to Be Counselor

I am pleased with a decision I made yesterday to counsel my lunch buddies. The topic of carrying handguns came up—with most of the table, except me, agreeing that people with permits should be able to carry guns at all times.

Feeling restimulated about the subject matter, and after some fruitless attempts to state my opinion, I decided I needed to change my tactic. I asked the women, “Was there ever a time you wished you had a gun and did not?” Each one had an experience in which she or someone around her felt threatened. It was a good lunch topic, and I realized, once again, the benefits of deciding to be counselor.
