Your Lesson on How to Treat People

There’s A LOT of hate and predjudice in the world today.  I’ve never understood most of it.  I found this on my Facebook wall yesterday and thought it was a statement that rings true with me:

Is that so hard to wrap your head around?  It’s the assholes I don’t like!  I have, or had, friends that are black, white, Mexican, Irish, Scottish, straight, bisexual, homosexual.  Lord knows that my friends come in all shapes and sizes, ethnic backgrounds and financial class. What ALL of my friends have in common is that we are there for each other no matter what.  We call not because we always want something, but just to chat.

Sometimes, I think some people’s definition of “friend” has skewed over time.
