Someone once said to me"Don't call anyone mad"

"Why"? I said.

"Because they are not"

"Well, make me understand.what do you say when you see someone dressed in ragged clothes,talking to themselves and eating from a dumpster?"

The lady laughed.

"Listen my friend.They could be tard but it is wrong to think for a second that you are better than them",patted me on my shoulder ."As a matter of fact, the same way you look at them,look down on them,they too do.They too think you must be out of your mind dressing the way you do and everything else you classify as normal.They are comfortable in their own world"

"Is that so"? At this point ,a tear dropped from one Conner of my eye.I got emotional and scared that I was going to hell for laughing and looking down on a human being made of flesh and blood just like me.

That's when I remembered a day when I was called a mad person by someone I called mad. I realized from then on that I am no different .

"Then what am I supposed to say my friend when I see such a one?"

"Good question ,Kelvin "She said."Here is what you should say,"There goes a person who thinks different from me.The word M.A.D is an acronym,it means make a difference"
