    While in college, a short few years ago, I noticed many punctuation marks. However, that is not all. I also noticed many misspelled words. I had gone back to college at the age of 65. The ones that were making these mistakes were fresh out of high school. Most did not know the difference of the words your, you’re, or a lot, and many others.
    How did they graduate from high school to college? I do not care if we tweet, Facebook, LinkedIn, or any other social media; we need the correct punctuation. We might use the computer more than we hand write material, but we still need to know how to write and use punctuation and spelling.
    Thank you for the article. I hope others read it. I have many friends who are educators and they are always posting lessons on punctuation. Oh, I mean they are posting those lessons on social medias where people forget how use punctuations and such.

    #5 Thanks for your comment @Charlene Burke. I once at a dinner meeting and made a "toast to our mothers"... it went something like this, "I want to make a toast to our mothers; they brought us into this world, they taught very important things and I allowed us to meet such wonderful people".

    Well said. No one ever reaches the top solely on their own power. They may have always been the leader with the vision, the task master ensuring that all did their work, and/or the innovator who continually challenged herself and therefore anyone on the team. Leaders and winners that get my respect will acknowledge the contributions of those who helped make it happen. And, yes, sometimes it begins with "Thank you, Mom". :)

    Good article @Mohammed A. Jawad. You wrote: "Even working with “difficult people” can provide value when change managers treat communications with respect and are willing to reconsider some aspects of the change to accommodate sub-organizational needs while still fulfilling plan objectives." I agree 100%. The downside, when your managers are the difficult people and have no vision to be 'change managers.' I ran into this with my last job. Thank goodness in all my years of work it was a short lived experience.
