Let’s assume the best of each other….

I have noticed in the past month how many people have absolutely no grace. What happened to common courtesy. What about being nice to your neighbor. Not mocking people. Not making fun of the way someone looks, talks or acts.  Believing in people. It really is sad.

Last week I noticed on Facebook a large woman had fallen out of her wheelchair while shopping. Someone stood behind her and took a picture. Posted it to Facebook. Ridiculing her and walked away. What about common decency? Make sure she wasn’t hurt. Help her up. Make sure she was ok. But no. You take a sensational picture. Post it and walk away.

There are so many examples of this sort of attitude lately. Posting a picture on social media making fun of someone. Whether they are fat, skinny, tall, short. The way they wear there hair or don’t have hair. It doesn’t seem to matter. No one seems to care about being kind. Being generous. Being graceful. It seems to be getting worse. The ugliness in this country makes me sad. You can’t have an opinion without someone ridiculing you for your stand. Don’t even bring up who you voted for. God forbid you are a Trump supporter. It comes at you from every angle. I love this country and am proud to be an American. I was raised to respect Police Officers. I respect the President. I respect my elders. What a concept.

Let’s assume the best of each other. How about we start with that. Assume the best instead of the worst and I bet we will all be pleasantly surprised.

    Very nicely said and so true. Humor has always been a mean shot at a third party. Social media only enlarges the target.
