we have a choice of the face we show to others, our family, and our friends. We have the choice of being kind and reflective of our own actions, or if we are going to throw our phone and break the television. Which choice would make us easier to love?
And with all of this, Biden and Harris will take the reins today (assuming this posts as anticipated).

You see it all of the time. Somebody doesn't like something about their meal, so they take it out on the server, not considering that she or he isn't the one who prepared it, or how busy the restaurant is.

Somebody doesn't like waiting as a pedestrian crosses the street, leaning on the horn but never wondering why that person has to be walking.
