You see people walking on the street, at the grocery store, in their cars, at restaurants. People unknown to us can seem homogenized and we often treat them that way. Unfortunately, we have no idea what strangers are going through. Those unknown to us have deep and powerful stories, celebrations, tragedies. Imagine the hard days our unknown fellow humans could be having. And yet too often we treat each other without thought. Worse still, we can treat them with disrespect and impatience.

  2. Maybe we should just give strangers the benefit of the doubt sometimes.

  3. I find that hard to argue with.
