If You Can Do Bad--You Can Do Good Just As Easily

posted by John Baibak - 


Now that I am back in the swing of things after some time off… a thought or two about the last week and the news cycle--

On my college crew last year I had two Poles, two Italians, a Baptist, a black and a German.

We spoke what needed to be said without personal anger.

We acted like the people on a mission because we had one.

We worked for each other.We had each other’s back.

And at no time when someone had a problem did I wish harm upon them (well with the exception of the threat I made against the back judge who booked us into a NY hotel which was short of my standards).

The point is that when someone had a criticism, others had an ear.

When someone had a problem, someone had a solution.

So having said that … When there is something bad in someone’s mind, why can’t we replace it with good?

When someone wants to do bad--isn’t it as easy to replace it with something good.

Or to say something that harms, to do something that builds?

I guess sports, which so many contend mimics life, doesn’t at all.  

Perhaps for the good of everyone, maybe it should.
