Why is it that people and countries cannot get along? The wars pretty much say it all, but there is no real reason or justification for it. In many of the Facebook videos the meanness and lack to fair treatment to others has increased dramatically. Why can’t they give videos that bring happiness and joy? Very few offer kindness. One of my favorite episodes of “Leave it to Beaver” involves the Beaver and his friend Chewy. Chewy moved to town recently and is in the Beaver’s class. They get along splendidly even though Chewy knows very little English. The Beave primarily played at Chewy’s house until finally one day he visited the Cleaver household. His mother brought him who also did not speak English either. The boys had a great time and played well together until the infamous Eddie Haskell who knew a little Spanish tricked the Beaver. He told him that he was complimenting his friend when in reality he said that the boy had a nose like a pig. Of course, everything became a mess. Finally, Ward stepped in with a little Spanish and straightened the whole situation out. My point of this story and why I like it is because they boys were simply happy playing together. Ethnicity or a lack of language didn’t stop them. Another example occurred during work yesterday. A woman called in with a problem with her deed. Her husband, son and father had all passed within the past few years so she was worried about her property. She kept meticulous notes but I still needed to order a deed trail so that I could try to help her. At one point she told me that she was a woman of a specific ethnicity. I told her that I was Irish and it did not matter to me. I told her as a country we marry everyone. It is in our DNA to accept everyone and if they ask for help to give it. She was happy with me as I promised I would call her next week. The point of my conversation was simple. We all get along and that is what is important, don’t you agree?
