||Being a college counselor is an amazing responsibility. It is my daily actions that produce the climate that I live and work in. I have great power to make my life and work miserable or wonderful. I can be a tool of destruction or an instrument of encouragement, I can hurt or heal. In all circumstances, it is my response that illustrates my humanity. If we treat people as they are, we are just ordinary. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them realize their extraordinary potential.
