Whatever happened to the Golden Rule….
Do you remember as children your parents teaching you about the “Golden Rule?” Do you even know what it is? “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” It’s very simple, Treat other people the way that you want to be treated. You may ask what made me think about this at this very moment. Well, last night someone took a key and made a big scratch on my daughters car. It goes all the way from the front fender to the tail light. It has been parked on the street ever since she has lived in our house and no one has messed with it other than an occasional “egging”. Why would someone be so thoughtless as to treat another person’s property this way? Were they never taught the Golden Rule?
A police officer came by this morning and made a report. I asked him what kind of person does this kind of thing. He asked if she had an ex-boyfriend that might have wanted revenge. We said no, that she travels and doesn’t have any ex-boyfriends in Houston. He said it could have been teenager’s out for a little “fun”. Again, I ask myself, didn’t these people have parents that taught them the difference between right and wrong. This is just outright wrong, there is no two ways about it. I just wonder how this person would feel if it had been their car that had been damaged by someone out for fun or revenge? I’ll bet they would have pitched a fit!
Let’s just remember the Golden Rule and live by it in our lives. Enough said!
