Aunt Sadie – “You can’t fix others til you’ve fixed yourself”

Now I ain’t talking bout fixin yourself healthy. Although if you’re 100 pounds over where your weight ought to be, maybe you shouldn’t be telling people what foods they should be eating.

No, I’m talking of how we show are kids what’s right and what’s wrong. We tell em they should be saving their money for a rainy day and then run out and stick a brand new television onto our credit cards. We tell em to be kind and considerate for others then go out honking and flipping off other people for daring to drive on the same road.

We tell em to respect your elders and then shove our own parents into some home and forget about em.

We want them to be tolerant of those that are a bit different than us but yet use words like ‘greedy Jews, all Muslims are terrorists, all blacks are lazy, all brown people want to sell us drugs and then steal our jobs.’

Remember friends, we can talk until we’re blue in the face but our kids will learn their lessons from what we do after the talking is over.
