Yes, we all need to learn key elements in humanism and world view into people and kindness. We do not know everyone’s story or circumstances… A few years ago I just finished teaching a few college classes, and was on my way to my counseling office. Well this “young punk ass” (well there were other expletives used) ran a red light, turned left instead of doing the turn about. Well, this young punk was pulled over by the police… I yelled, “serves you right asshole!”

Well, the young man and police were rushing and then this young man grabs his lifeless young daughter out of the back seat (about 8 months old) and rushed into the cop car then hurried onto the emergency room…. My heart sank……

With my knowledge, training and back ground in counseling psychology; albeit, i was reminded yet again about realizing to place myself in other’s shoes.. A daily lesson I try to help couples do in my office…. I am forever humbled by that experience… Yes, I am usually humble, though a joking smart ass too; though at that very moment, I was forced to become even more humble with others.. A lesson I’ll never forget…
