Me first

My wife and and I were discussing the aspects of the "me first" mentality this morning. It is very apparent as you watch people drive, or interact in the stores, and sometimes even on the job.  We visiting a new city this weekend, so we were a little more observant and easy-going than we normally were…and our eyes were opened. Our parents taught us to help out. You know – the little things:  hold a door open, tell the deli guy the patron at the end of the counter was there first, let someone go first at the stop sign after you both arrive at the same time.  All things, that in the end, make your day and the other person's day more tolerable.  The movie "Pay it forward" touched on this principle in a grand way, but we could make life so much bearable if we did the little things daily.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
