It’s that time of year and all of you, like me, hear Amy Grant sing the powerful lyrics of one of many of her holiday songs. I thought I’d provide my spin for your entertainment. (Fortunately for you, you can’t hear me sing it!)
No more lives torn apart (no deregulation of our profession),
Then wars would never start (our industry would unite and support each other),
And time would heal all hearts (we would share accountability and promote reporting of income so our professions would be recognized as viable employment opportunities).
And every one would have a friend (every licensed professional would seek continuing education to remain current and grow their craft),
And right would always win (mobility of licensure and common sense regulation would become reality),
And love would never end (our industry would thrive and be respected)
