On being nice

"Be nice to everyone. You never know when your paths will cross again." 
Sarah Warren
I find it rather shocking how many folks on this planet seem to misunderstand - or completely ignore - this very simple, basic truth. It's sad, really, as life would be a lot less stressful for all of us if people simply tried harder to be kind.

I'll stop screaming into the wind now.

Truth, pure and simple.

I will be honest in that I really did not learn this until I was out of college. I was a bit self-centered and as much as my parents tried to raise us correctly, they really neglected this aspect of life. I did learn it, the harder way, over the years. As I look back, I wondered how I could be so stupid, but racists who have converted to a more honorable attitude are also amazed at how ignorant they were!

Well said, and very true, Carmi. I had a 6th grade teacher who mentioned this quite a lot. For this, I was fortunate!

I totally agree with you Carmi.
