The sad reality of it all is we all do it, we judge despite not wanting to be judged and aid in slandering whether or not we know personally the events in which they took place and in doing so when we should be quiet we qucik to lend our own knowledge or so we think

Do you know what it’s like to be scrutinized?  To have your name involved in a scandal?  Have you ever thought what it may feel like to be in the shoes of a person facing public humiliation?  All of this may seem too far fetch or even unimaginable for the Samaritan of saints, yet so many go through public humiliation on so many occurrences.  What’s funny is so many movies come out displaying all types of scenarios of how good common folk are falsely accused daily of wrong that they never committed, not saying they aren’t guilty of any wrong but that wrong they may not be guilty of.  Falsely accused of incidents that were committed by other folk, even when your name is good or can’t anyone find any dark mark or blemish of wrong.  We all hate to be judge or accused of something we didn’t do, let alone publicly humiliated for being involved in something we didn’t commit.  Can you imagine being ridiculed on a constant basis and fingers of blame being directed towards you?  Probably not, yet what if this was your life?  In a glass room, all secrets you deem to be secret open to the public making you the topic of social media and news national or international depending on who you are or the incident that occurred.  Many folk who felt they would never reach a Plato of popularity have been made popular through insinuating circumstances caused by folk with no morals and very little consideration for folk who are different from them.  Hatred runs deep in many and the sad reality of it is they can care less about the respect of human life when it comes to others.  We all deem ourselves different and unique and wanting to think or at least give the assumption we are not like others all the while we are far from that truth.  No one on this earth is that much different from the other, true you may be unique in your approach but even in that someone else unbeknown to you have done that same thing, just because you don’t know or haven’t heard it doesn’t make you the author of it. 

Many folk have faced public humiliation, scrutiny and ridiculed for being falsely accused.  Let’s say these folk are guilty of what they are accused of, let’s not play into the would be lies and tales of those who seek to kick a person while they are down, yet this seems to be the human way of life.  How can we, humans, do to others what we would not want done to us or our love ones?  Our inhumane actions show how twisted and cruel we are from the start of creation and how we have evolve from primitive thinking to ignorant thinking, it’s like the smarter we may seem to get the more ignorant we become.  Technology has only proven how dumb we are in our actions and how we have not evolve as a species to learn to work together despite our ethnicity, religion or preference in life to be whom we decide to be.  We all have our own way of thinking and come to our own beliefs despite how we grew up or what we were taught.  Let’s be honest for a moment we all have something we arguably wouldn’t want to share publicly and for most of us even privately.  It’s these or those things we deem private something we will carry to the grave if have to.  We have to remember that all we do is under scrutiny, whether public or private.  Our matters are not our own, although we feel they are.  The one thing we have to accept is no matter what at any given time we can be in the wrong place at the wrong time or the right place at the wrong time and insinuating circumstances can occur to put us in a situation of public humiliation and scrutiny despite our statue in life.  We have to have a good name and not allow our good to be evil spoken of, and even with that there are folk who seek to destroy you for their own satisfaction.  We have to live our lives so that even when evil arise to slander us that it won’t uproot the good we have done or displayed.  Then there is always that saying “if everyone is saying it, it must be true” , and you have those afraid to speak out on your behalf  for fear of them being slandered and those who participate in the wrecking crew of mayhem are those who seek a rise in notoriety.We have become a people of what can you do for me, or anything to advance my own personal goal that we would sell ourselves to the devil for materialistic things.  So, again I ask, do you know what it’s like to be scrutinized and place on a pedestal for public humiliation or involved in some sort of scandal?  The next time you decide to add your own opinion of someone else’s demise always remember you are just as human as they are, despite whether or not you know the person.  It’s easy to kick a person when they are down, yet difficult to build in their time of need.  Which role do you play in the masonry?
