My name is Moriah Freeman.  I’m a retired executive assistant who worked at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA for 25 years.  Since my retirement nearly a year ago, I have spent much time reflecting on my career, my life and responsibilities outside of work, my relationships, the American society in which I live, and my beliefs about what is true, good, loving and just.

In all my reflections, the theme of “respect” has come up repeatedly.  I have decided to start a blog as a way of sharing some of my thoughts about respect and of inviting conversation about this topic.

Many thanks to my wonderful proof reader, editor and friend, Anna Dunavin, who makes my writing clearer and my grammar and punctuation correct.
