On this, November 11th, the day we remember the people who have given their lives  for their countries, I find the disparity between the ultimate in self-sacrifice and the continuing reports of disrespect and lack of empathy discouraging. I had a discussion on Facebook this morning with a man who told me that his daughter-in-law had been verbally accosted in a store while holding her 18-month-old child; there are so very many reports such as this and even worse coming in, it almost makes me want to hide. But I won’t, because there is something I can do.

For all the people who lack empathy in the world, I believe there are more who understand that we all have our struggles. And whether we deem them bigger than ours or not, a struggle is a struggle. An exhausted single mother washing her own dishes in an effort to control something

    By way of an analogy – When I used to drive to work, I would be sharing my route with probably over 1000 vehicles. I would always remember the idiot who lane changed without signalling, or the fool that was driving about 24 ins from my rear bumper. I would remember the car that passed me doing about 40km/hr over the speed limit, and of course the one that decided to use the road shoulder as a way of moving through the heavy traffic faster.
    The point is that I would always remember those 4-5 inconsiderate drivers on any given drive to work…… I would totally ignore the 995 +/- drivers who were perfectly fine!
    Of course we keep hearing about profiling, discrimination, corruption etc. etc., but we must also note the huge part of this planet’s population that are law abiding, compassionate and caring individuals. They really are out there but, sadly, they have little news value to the media!
