Thoughts - December 15, 2016

“Every life deserves a certain amount of dignity, no matter how poor or damaged the shell that carries it.”
― Rick Bragg, All Over But the Shoutin'
So, what is meant by 'dignity'? I find myself looking up the definition in Mr. Webster's handy book. The first entry is 'worthiness' and I think I'll simply stop with that one. Until proven otherwise (and even if proven otherwise?!), I believe it wise to quit judging and bellyaching about 'others'. This is the time of year when we actually put little barns on our coffee tables and give dignity to a baby who was born in a stable and placed in a feeding trough - yet worthy of the finest of gifts brought by kings. My goodness, what point was being made - and by Whom?! - Beth Almond Ford
