Small is as small does...


Ever notice how some folks jump to belittle someone else, and you see right through them, exposing their insecurity and lack of gumption to better themselves through their own efforts, rather than make themselves look better by demeaning some one else? I think that this human fallacy is the fundamental flaw in bigotry, racism, and vanity. It would appear to be inspired and furthered by the left, in that the apparant goal is to allocate everyone into convenient categories, isolating and eliminating the individual. But individuality is the crux of human existance, and the ultimate goal of each individuals existance, is to have made a difference, and bettered the life of someone besides themselves, or at least that's what I perceive. It is a cop out, to attack someone for being different, and attempt to raise one's own value by devaluing another. If the object of the ridicule and derision has a perceptable problem, wouldn't it be more noble to help that person, with compassion and consideration, rather than degrade them? Granted, there are precious few people who understand and appreciate the difference between constructive and destructive criticism, between recognition of the attempt of a person offering constructive criticism, through finding the correct time and situation (as not in front of others, where the other person would probably be embarrased) and denying the instinctive response to address the issue immediately, and then take the additional time and effort to effectively administer it. I read a quote when I was in 7th grade, that had such a profound impact on me, that I have carried it, indelibly etched in my mind ever since, and I have strived to live by the spirit of the quote. I do not know who the author was. If anyone can give the credit where the credit is due, I would greatly appreciate it! The quote was "It is better to aim high and miss, than to aim low and hit!" Society tells us that it is deplorable to fail or lose. I think that losing is not all that bad, as long as we learn from our failures and become better people for the lesson learned. After all, it is not the mistakes we have made that make us the person we are, rather it is what we have done with the lessons learned, that forms and shapes our character, and dictates how we face life's challenges to come. But then, I guess that I could be wrong!
