It's amazing how much our environment affects us. I realize this is evident to most everyone from the most basic level of air, food, and water, to the more complex levels of social interaction and personal perception. Again I understand that most people realize that they can have a tremendous affect on people; but sometimes we forget. Especially now in our modern world we are very quick to walk away from queues of problems even in the lives of our family and friends. Of course in the city we are trained to let the authorities deal with the little old lady on the side of the highway. Hell, she could be packing. Maybe we will consider calling in a vagrant in distress, but we know that the odds of that call helping is slim. Despite all of these I'll of the modern world, let us remember how we affect others by out speech and actions, especially to the young. And let us remember that we can become lost in our own world while no one bothers to mention that we might need help.
