People worthy of gratitude don’t whine about a ‘thank you’
After the return of the UCLA basketball players and the latest embarrassing exchange between the president and a private citizen, I have a serious question I’d like to ask Trump supporters.
I am going to assume that many of you have been hardworking, responsible citizens throughout your lives. People that were always willing to lend a hand to friends, family members and neighbors that may have needed one.
Over the course of your lives, have you ever stood by after helping someone waiting for a special thank you?
How about people you have most respected in your life? Those folks that have shoveled the elderly person’s driveway, helped a stranger change a tire, or shopped for a housebound friend?
Would you still respect them if they stood around waiting for a thank you?
Good people do good things without expecting a thank you. Funny thing is, they are the ones most likely to get gratitude and thanks.
In my opinion, people that have to beg for a thank you, and whine if it’s not quick enough, are rarely worth thanking in the first place.
My question to those of you that can still find a way to support this man is … why?
