Sometimes You Just Have to Decide to Act Wisely…

Even if you don’t want to.  Remembering the sage guidance of Ben Sira-

If you pursue justice, you will attain it
and wear it like a glorious robe.
Birds roost with their own kind,
so honesty comes home to those who practice it.

The conversation of the godly is always wise,
but the fool changes like the moon.

The talk of fools is offensive,
and their laughter is wantonly sinful.  (Sirach, 27)

Today in America It’s All About ‘Getting Even’…

I understand the urge to ‘get even’ that seems to be driving so many who support kicking the press secretary out of a restaurant. I guess that’s who many have chosen to be: vindictive, small, and just as deplorable as the deplorables. But it won’t lead to victory. It will only contribute to further divisions and an endless cycle of pettiness and viciousness.

If that’s what the majority of Americans want to become, let them. I’ve never wanted to be in the majority.
