try to be a little more understanding

9.11Yesterday was a day to reflect and remember 9/11.  It was a tragic time for the country, lives were lost, families were shattered and a nation was in mourning.  But there are lessons to be learned from this traumatic event that can translate into our everyday lives. Those first responders and others  involved didn’t hesitate to assist as it was the right action, and for that, many more lost their lives in the attempt to provide aid.  There was no easy way out and for that, as a nation, as a people, we are eternally grateful.

Closer to home, there are many events that happen in our everyday lives that impact each and every one of us, certainly by no means on as great a scale, but just as meaningful to each and every one of us.  Many of us become, as they say, “armchair quarterbacks”, walk a milesecond guessing any and every decision made in our daily journeys.  We view, we comment, we pass judgement and sometimes, we condemn.  It’s so easy to do while standing on the cusp of the problem.  I am guilty of it myself.  But sometimes I stand back and try to understand why something was done…try and understand the background information.  Most times I second guess…much like everyone else.  But I always remember what I was told when I was young: “Walk a mile in my shoes, and you will understand”.

So my fellow REALTORS, until next Monday:  Let’s ALL try to be a little more understanding.
