So I recently had an experience that resulted in me coming to a few harsh realizations.
The Background: My wallet fell out of my pocket at a Cookstown McDonald’s and I didn’t realize it until I got to Guelph. And a whole process was engaged to get my wallet back.
Wallets are important.
I really should check my pockets more often. Especially when I feel jerks on them as I am getting in the car.
Despite my firm belief that the measure of a man (or a woman for that matter) should be determined by his (or her) heart and mind, society will judge me by appearances, by material culture–and unfortunately a large part of that criteria is in my wallet.
Why is it that a mere material object holds my entire position in society in its bowels?
How can our society have gone so wrong that we are judged on such a flimsy basis?
To do my best to change the basis on which we are judged!
