There actually are good, thoughtful, responsible people in our society.

I was convinced that there were about 40 people in America that have considered the thought below. Now I know there are 41.

“I think there are too many people today that feel they are entitled to certain aspects of life when they have not done a single thing to earn it. A lot of people will blame those outside forces, but instead of dealing with the problem, they will whine until something is given to them to make them shut up. American society today is a lot like that. If we complain enough society will give us a pacifier to shut up. Instead of encouraging people to take responsibility for their lives, we encourage them to be beggars, to become complacent and apathetic in trying to succeed” wrote Deirdre Lynds.

Such beautiful words!

I did a search for “responsibility” on twitter and up pops Dee Dee’s blog post about taking responsibility. She has a great story as a woman who underwent gastric bypass surgery two years ago. Her major motivation for sticking to a healthy plan is so that she can donate a kidney to her brother.

I blog too frequently about everyone who is doing wrong. This is a refreshing story about a woman who is doing right in the world.

Thanks, Dee Dee.
