Twitter Petition

Posted on Thursday, May 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

I want to start a petition so Twitter.com offers a one-time-use 313 character exception!

On Twitter I follow family and friends, athletes and musicians, world-changers, and beat writers, but nothing, nothing, nothing has made me wanna tweet and re-tweet more than this:

Gently encourage the stragglers, and reach out for the exhausted, pulling them to their feet. Be patient with each person, attentive to individual needs. And be careful that when you get on each other’s nerves you don’t snap at each other. Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.” 1

“Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.” is the kind of wise advice that changes everything: 

Wives will be more happy, and less naggy.
Husbands will be more cooperative, and less passive.
Families will listen more, and fight less.

Dates will be more caring, and less nervous.
Boyfriends will be more confident, and less cocky.
Girlfriends will be more secure, and less suspicious.

Boardrooms will be more collaborative, and less contentious.
Lunchrooms will be more chatty, and less catty.
Cubicles will be more gregarious, and less gossipy.

And, maybe, maybe, political advertisements would be more helpful, and less vitriolic.

Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.

It’s advice the most honorable parent, insightful friend, wise professor, and expensive therapists will recommend, but you and I can read it in a Bible.

“Look for the best in each other, and always do your best to bring it out.”

Does it have to be mySILENTscream today?!?

  2. Thanks, Scott!

  3. You’re welcome Phil!
    I was just talking about you and your love for your wife yesterday! =D
