We often see and hear people criticize, make fun of and dislike others because of their appearance, the way they talk, their race or their faith. We are all human beings. People are what they are by the accident of their birth. Some are born with physical defects. Others are born to particular faiths. Others are born in foreign countries. It's not right to humiliate others whom you think are not up to your standard of what is correct. LOOK IN THE MIRROR. The following is a poem to live by. DON'T JUDGE OTHERS TOO HARSHLY Pray do not fault with the man who limps, or stumbles along the road,, , Unless you have worn the shoes he wears, or struggled beneath his load. There may be tracks in his shoes that hurt, though hidden away from the view. The burden he bears, placed on your back, might cause you to stumble, too. Don't sneer at the man who's down today, unless you have felt the blow, That caused his fall, or felt the shame that only the fallen know. You may be strong, but still the blows that were his, if dealt to you, In the self-same way at the self-same time, might cause you to stagger, too. Don't be harsh with the man who sins, or pelt him with word and stone. Unless you are sure, yea doubly sure, that you have no sins of your own. For, you know, perhaps, if the tempter's voice should whisper as soft to you, As it did to him when he went astray, 'twould cause you to falter, toot [Author Unkaw11)
