In which I really should be doing my homework.

You know what I realized about people today?

Everyone is right in some ways.
And everyone is wrong in some ways.

But everyone is right and wrong in different ways from each other.

Which makes it really easy for one person to say, "Look, I'm right and you're wrong!"

And for the other person to say, "Um, no, I'm right and you're wrong!"

And for both statements to be true. Because both of them are right. And both of them are wrong.

I think that's the cause of most conflicts. Global, national, political, cultural, personal, familial.

Everyone's right. And everyone's wrong.

So if we could all just cooperate enough to put all our rightnesses together, and then help each other get rid of our wrongnesses....

Wishful thinking, I suppose.
