Nights like tonight, hanging out with old friends and new, I realize more concretely that until you know someone, you can't judge him. What I mean is--you can hear something about someone; his political beliefs, religious beliefs, jobs, alma mater, home state, etc. and think, "Oh, he's THAT kind of guy" because of any one of those, but you'd probably be wrong. I was hanging out with an atheist, a catholic, an agnostic, two gays, two lesbians, an ex-Infantry officer, three people who voted for Bush a total of five times, four Obama supporters, a political agnostic, a physical therapist and three dogs...

There were only five of us there, but it was great! I kept thinking to myself that if you drew any single descriptor of any one of us out of a hat, you'd probably guess wrong about every other aspect of any one of us. And, if you judge someone...anyone...based upon one single attribute, you'd probably be wrong as well.

Its not surprising but somehow all of us are trapped in this jail where we do judge people intentionally or unintentionally.

Keep on writing!
