Humanist Thought of the Week: 12 2 2008
Is it Worth it?
It is important to think before you act.
Everything you do has consequences.
And the question you need to ask yourself before you do something is this:
Is it worth it?
Will the potential negatives be worth whatever positive may come out of your actions?
I am sure if the shoppers at that Long Island Wal-Mart had thought before they decided to surge into the store, they would not have done so.
People get hurt in mob surges.
This time someone died.
I hope every single shopper that was there that morning is thinking long and hard about whether the $10 dollars they saved on their child’s holiday toys, was worth the life of a man just trying to earn some extra cash during the holidays.
