Dear TKA Family/Team,
It is interesting to think about how important it is to have a “converter” in our personal exhaust system. Do you remember what a catalytic converter is? According to Wikipedia, they are an emissions control device which converts toxic by-products of combustion in the vehicle’s exhaust to less toxic (sickening) substances. Therefore, gossip and other negative information can be sickening and even destructive. So, if we maintain an active personal converter we can “clean up” what we hear before we “exhaust” it out.
With that being said, perhaps we could equip ourselves with tolerance, compassion, grace, love, enthusiasm, and gratitude. Most vehicle converters are three-way converters. I have just suggested six ways. Oh yes, don’t forget the seventh…courage…the courage to confront those who want to spread their sickening emissions.
