Well Wisher

Read your blog
And interestingly it reminded me of my own original thinking that i simply logged.
People always told me to “lay low” or “silence is golden” if i tried to speak up
And this is what I told my daughter : when you don’t use your voice to stand up for what’s wrong then your voice becomes the voice of those who wrong.

I like the first quote by Dennis Lahane.(The others I have heard several times before, and sadly they feel a bit jaded in this age of crazy politics). This makes abundantly clear the difference between Sympathy and Empathy.
– Marcus Aurelius, emperor in Ancient Rome, famously wrote (in "Meditations") “Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?”
He also wrote: "Put an end once for all to this discussion of what a good man should be, and be one."

To wit, there is also this quote, author uncertain:
"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes."
