People aren’t always nice, it’s a fact of life that just seems to be constant, but that doesn’t mean you have to allow it.
Sometimes when people are being insulting the only thing you can do to stand up to them is to speak your own mind. They may listen or they may choose to ignore you, but the fact of the matter is that if you choose to remain silent then things will only continue on as they have been. That’s why when this man decided to start talking crap about a grocery bagger with Down Syndrome I almost lost my wits, but then the elderly woman behind him did something incredible!
It’s a plain and simple statement followed up with even more common sense, the thing the insulter seemed to be lacking. That woman wasn’t afraid of the fact that she was speaking against the anger of a young, athletic guy; she only cared that his anger was misplaced on someone who obviously didn’t deserve it. Good going lady, I’m glad there’s still people like you around out there still trying to make the world a better place.
