Ever think someone was horrible? Ever think that someone deserved harsh punishment for a crime they committed? Have you ever thought “man I saw that coming?”
Well doesn’t it seem like all that changes, when it’s someone you love? Then all of a sudden they’re not that bad. Or the punishment should be less harsh, or you never saw that coming at all. It’s a whole new perspective when the spotlight is on someone that’s closer. Hmm should everyone be examined that way? Should every person be looked at with such care?
Should everyone be looked at as guilty until proven innocent? Or if they are familiar to you, innocent until proven guilty? That’s just how life goes huh? We give softer judgement to people we know, and strangers we judge harshly. I wonder how it would be if everyone was judged with a clean slate set before them, along with no ties with anyone. What would the verdict be?
Hmmm something to think about…. ©
