Being Right

“Many people today, it seems, would rather be right than compassionate.”  Karen Armstrong

As I read this quote I thought of a recent story I had seen in which someone had clipped together a series of videos of adults who had gotten so intent on getting a baseball in the stands that he/she muscled out or pushed aside a child in order to get the ball.  I looked at those and shook my head, but it is easy  to do the equivalent in life with my insistence on being right.
