  • My 10 years old little sister just gave me food for thought:

    We were walking on the street when we saw a man with a dog. We went near him because she wanted to say 'hi' to the white dog. Once we were there he showed us a video and we were talking to him for a while. He was obviosly high and he smelled of alcohol. After we left, little sister said he was a good man. I said he was nice but that you don't always have to trust people only because they seem nice because sometimes they do bad things. Her answer was: "Only because he has made mistakes and he takes drugs doesn't mean he's a bad person. He always asks for food and money politely and always says thank you. He is a bit scary, ok, but only because he's dirty and smells bad. But he always tells people to be smarter than him. It's like B., from my class. Kids think he's bad, but he isn't. Yeah, he insults and so on but if you treat him in a good way and play with him and you are nice to him, he's good and nice to you. People think he's bad, but he isn't. So just don't judge them because you only see one little part of them.

    Ok... I've been complaining about being judged lately and what was I doing? Judging a book by its cover... I should really thank my little sister and pay more attention to my acts and thoughts!
