I got some sad news this morning about someone I knew. Frankly, it’s not someone I knew well. But I did like and respect the guy. And so I get a lump of sadness when I think about this news.
While the news is sad for me, it’s devastating to this other person, and the people close to him.
This event gets me thinking we should be kind to one another, because we don’t know what kind of burden the other person is carrying. And if that other person is sometimes difficult to deal with, well, maybe it’s because their burden is extremely heavy, and they are in greater need of kindness.
