This Weekend for Me

For days, I've seen equal signs all over Facebook as people change their profile picture to support "equal marriage" (or same-sex marriage, whatever you want to call it). I've also seen those in opposition post links to articles and all sorts of things, including plus signs and division signs to mock the equal signs.

I've stayed out of it. The fact is, my opinion on the subject isn't completely cut-and-dry. But that's neither here nor there. The fact is, it's yet another dividing line.

And then today, I'm on Facebook and someone posts this picture:


It's a cop in Texas who shut down the road to save a chihuaha. (Full story here.)

That's what this weekend is all about. It's not about fighting over who is stomping on whose rights. It's about trying our damnedest to be the cop while realizing we are the chihuahua.

Yup, a person in power, saving one who deserves to die.

Well said, Aaron. (comments need 'like' buttons)

I have such a jaded idea of cops that I find it heartening when I realize they're just human beings, after all, capable of kindness and humanity. I mean, I know this, but I don't always know it.

I can understand that, Jill. But I also know some cops personally who are some of the kindest, most selfless people I know. Glad you found this story heartening. It actually brought tears to my eyes.
