Don’t Forget to Remember! – How Making & Marking Memories Brings Us Closer Together

Tim and Susan* walked into our office for their first-ever session of marital counseling. We detected right away the vast emotional disconnectedness between them. It required little expertise to do so. The atmosphere was like ice. They scooted their chairs a few more inches apart as they sat across from us. They both leaned on the outside armrests and looked straight ahead. If body language were audible, theirs would have been shouting: “WE ARE MILES APART!”

The Wall Street Journal acknowledged that the United States Military academies are “the best business schools in the nation.” (Scott Snair, West Point Leadership Lessons (Naperville, IL: SourceBooks, Inc., 2004, ix.)
