I became fascinated with the concept of speak no, see no, hear no evil. And – and the actual depiction of three wise monkeys. And I began collecting it over the years. And I kind of figured that I might be the – the fourth monkey, the feel no evil monkey.
Forgiveness is not to give the other person peace. Forgiveness is for you. Take that opportunity.
By the time I turned 18, I moved into a little chalet of my own and felt very grown-up.
My mother went to a school called 'The Club of the Three Wise Monkeys'. And my grandmother, my father's mother, had a gold charm for her made with the speak no, see no, hear no evil monkeys. And I was fascinated by that charm. I'd sit in my mother's lap and play with it all the time.
I am so saddened by the loss of our dear friend, Bonnie Franklin. She was just full of light and love. Bonnie will be very much missed by all the people she touched with her love.
