THE GOLDEN RULE

Good morning everybody. Have you been watching t.v. lately? 💻 There are so many horrible things that have happened recent and not so recently.

For example, I was watching a Barbara Walters special the other night-American Scandal. It was about Jonbenet Ramsey. Remember her? The little 6 year old girl that was found brutally murdered and sexual assulted in her own home December 26, 1996 in Boulder, Colorado? Absolutely tragic. 😥 Even worse, they still have not found her killer nearly 19 years later. 😦 I personally think that it was the man dressed as  Santa Claus 🎅 on the night of the Ramsey’s Christmas party that year. He told Jonbenet he would make a special visit to her AFTER Christmas but that she had to keep it a secret.

And then you have all of the bombings and shootings at schools and sportings events and in people’s homes and places of business. It’s all so sad and pointless and I just don’t understand how people can do the horrendous things to each other and live with themselves.
I mean, people are being killed, lives being lost, children being abused.  It’s so so, so, so sick and disheartening. I just want to ask: “WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?   DO YOU NOT SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING??!!!”

But I degress….

My point is that almost everything you hear anymore is how people harass, hurt, injure, and kill others. It is horrible. And so depressing. Why can’t everyone just stop? Stop tormenting others, stop trying to take what they have not earned, stop destroying lives.

If everyone would live by the golden rule, then all of this tragedy would stop. You know what The GOLDEN RULE is right?

Just think about this for a minute.

A LOT OF HORRIBLE THINGS WOULD STOP…

* Divorce

* Fighting

* Bullying

* Robberies

* Beatings

* Drunk Driving

* Abuse

* Workplace Frustration

* Rape

* Murder

* Terrorism

* War

Wow, can you imagine how wonderful our lives, our country, our WORLD 🌎 would be?

It’s not really that hard of a concept is it?

I mean, everyone is different. We all know that. From their looks to their religions to their cultures. That is something that will never change no matter how much we might want it too. So if it can’t be changed, why not make the best of it?

Everyone should take a second and put themselves in someone else’s shoes before they said or did something and ask themselves there’s, simple, BASIC questions:

1. Would I want to be hated, abused, raped, or killed?

2. How would I feel if they did this to me or to one of my family members?

The answer is easy.

You would feel horrible. You wouldn’t want that to happen to your family or friends. So why do it to someone else or their family or friends?

Respect everyone’s differences and beliefs as long as those differences and beliefs don’t involve hurting or killing others.

Life is too short to be miserable and hard enough without causing disrespect, violence, and death to those around us.

This should be easy for those of us with any kind of a heart and soul. Or with any conscience or shred of human decency.

I know this is an ideallyic wish. But unfortunately not a realistic one. There are so many people in this world that are evil. Warped by those sick people around them or possibly born with defects that cause them to not just care. And those indivuals corrupt others. It’s a never ending circle of tragedy.

But those of us that actually care should never give up trying to treat each other with respect and love.

So my challenge to you is to make next year the

  1. Lovely sentiment, but the reality is it will continue until we all just stand up and say no more! We also have to use language, so expressive and to the point, to call things what they really are, hatred is hatred, terrorists are terrorists, evil is evil. Words matter, political correctness doesn’t matter, intentions matter.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Best, Tema Mereback
