The golden rule still applies

Robert Burkett

Everyone has had moments where grace escapes us and our mouths outstrip our minds.

Recently, due to the overcrowding of the parking lots around campus and the rising temperatures of the dog days of August, poor attitudes and verbal confrontations have seemed to become more common place than has been the trend in the past. While this can sometimes be explained as just tempers flaring, it seems as though students have forgotten that manners and consideration for those around you are the hallmarks of responsible adult behavior.

Many will take it for granted that we will all show a well mannered approach to our interactions with others.

It can be refreshing however, to take a step back and think about what we say and why we say it, lest we all suffer the indignity of making ourselves less than we would like to be thought of.
