So Do Something

     Yes, there was a horrible atrocity on the 14th, and all of us want to do something.

      We disagree over which "something."  Having the same old arguments over and over isn't actually "doing something." Demonizing people and institutions isn't "doing something."
      I'm going to try something else. Something more difficult: I'm going to smile at people. I'm going to talk to them. I'm going to try to treat people as something other than obstacles.

      I might not do it very well. I might not do a lot of good. But I will have done *something.*

      Wanna try?

I've been treating people in that way my entire life. It mostly helps. The problem arises when you run into a person who is bent on forcing you to do something that isn't in your best interest.
Maybe they are evil. Maybe insane. Maybe they just don't like you.

Then what?
