I did it. I finally was able to convince my husband that people are people. There are good and bad people everywhere in the world. You take any community, neighbourhood, town, village, city, country, or continent, people are just human beings. So my next task was to convince him that if anyone is apparently bad (because they could be good inside) it is because of the possibility of them being insecure or it could be their upbringing. Sometimes people think that if they are nice, others can take advantage of them. A lot of times so many factors get in our own way of wanting to be nice. So finally, my husband gave in. He said that everyone has at least one good thing in him.
Parents of today's kindergartners and first graders are raising their children with utmost care. They do not want their kids to grow up to be racist or sexist or religiously biased. There is an increased amount of awareness about teaching your kids self-worth and self-respect while teaching them to respect others at the same time. As a matter of fact people are thinking of giving their kids fresh environment even before their kids are born and sometimes even before they meet their possible future spouses. This makes me feel a little relaxed. Now the only task a head is to put away those people who take advantage of kids.
We lost one of our favourite actresses yesterday when Elizabeth Taylor passed away. Different television channels have been showing her life, her achievements and her diamonds and her wealth from perfume line etc. I am just glad that I did not come across any remark about her childhood being scared or her innocence being robbed. No wonder there was always a certain level of confidence and glow about her.
