Why is everyone so outraged all the time? Social media and the news are partly to blame. They feed on outrage. Which is why I rarely partake in either any more. Civility is a dying character trait that we need to revive. Being angry all the time is not healthy for individuals or society.

The golden rule still works. We need to start treating our neighbors (all humans) with kindness and civility (even if they don’t deserve it.) It’s hard to hate people who are being kind to you. You can’t control how other people respond but you can control how you act.

I’ll bet that mean old woman probably regretted her ridiculous outburst later. I hope so anyway. If not, maybe it will rain… 😉
