Everyone’s got a story. Everyone’s got a point of view. Even the idiots. Be kind. That’s all most people want anyway. They don’t want to take over America or to make everyone follow them. They just want a little respect. To be understood. We don’t need to give them everything they want to cool them off. We just need for them to know that they’re not under attack. That we don’t hate them, or plan to ruin their lives. They keep being told otherwise, and we’d be fools for giving them any more reason to believe it. No one’s going to agree with you about everything, but most people don’t expect that either. They just want a little respect. They want you to remember that they’ve got a story. But it never hurts to let them know that you’ve got one too.
