Undesirable Behavior


Ability of the rich to look down upon the poor, stating that the way they dress or look is abhorent.
Is it a learned behavior, because not all were born rich, some gained riches later in life?
It's a mystery I don't really care to learn about, it's just wrong and shouldn't be a part of our intimate world.
We were all born without clothes, long fingernails or speech, so if these attributes come to us as we grow, we are no better than anyone else.
If their minds have grown out of proportion to their lives, I imagine that would account for attitudes some have.
What gives anyone the right to say or think they are better - above - everyone else?
All of us are equal in God's eyes and that's the way we should be and the way we should treat one another in thought and deed.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
