fill in the blank>> The inability of people to follow the simplest requests.
and discuss>> Everyone after the OP until this post, totally failed to DISCUSS*. I think that when the request is simple, people tend to under read and assume. The Termite King wanted to know what your feelings were on the matter, not just a one word reply.
*One exception where one poster discussed but failed to fill in the blank!
I've probably just set myself up here to be targeted.

please don't make me discuss until I have my ice water bath.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

The power of a smile
You change a persons mood, attitude, demeanor, etc. often with a simple smile. I work in a medical facility that treats our veterans. I do not work in a medical profession however, and I do not work directly with our patients. However I always amke sure I greet every one I pass, stand in an elevator with, or stand in line with in the canteen (but not in the bathroom). Your smile can make a stranger who's feeling worried or concerned, less so and in a small way lift some of their anxiety. Your smile is a recognition of that person, making them realized that they are noticed, and are somebody. Sometimes a smile will get a glare or look away in return, that the other persons problem not yours. Give them them out freely, they cost nothing but are worth a lot.
Never underestimate the power of a shower after a trying day. It sounds stupid but I immediately feel better, especially when travelling. It makes you feel you are here in the present, not scattered all over the place.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Faith in God
It has resulted in incredible good: Hospitals, education, caring, generosity, freedom of mind, strength and direction in horrible times.
BUT it can result in Bombings, hatred, arrogance, judgement, fear, slavery, oppression-
It has brought our world true heros-Mother Theresa, Billy and now Franklin Graham, Tony Compolo. And Scoundrels, Al Queda, Jim Jones, Polygamist cults,
Feel free to add to either list.
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
