Who knows what this gentleman’s story is? Only him.

It’s important to look at each other sometimes, with an open mind, really see the people around us,. Look at younger people, older people, and maybe ask ourselves what there stories are or will be. We know our own life stories but what about that of others?

It’s easy to look at a conventionally dressed lady with a snooty look, for example, and dismiss her as being spoilt. Or see a drunk in the street and look away, with a disdainful, embarrassed glance. Judging by impressions. To be fair, who knows? Maybe the drunk was once a privileged child with absent parents! Perhaps the lady was from a deprived, inner-city family!

Sometimes, if you look at a child, do you ever wonder what their future has in store, where their fate may lead them? Where will fate strike blows or bless them with gifts? Or maybe we look and wonder at their innocence and trusting nature, their fascination with what we consider to be everyday objects or happenings. Children have very little choice over their formative years, whatever destiny gives them is what they then must build their adult life on. That’s another story for another day.

“Whatever happens, they say afterwards, it must have been fate. People are always a little confused about this, as they are in the case of miracles. When someone is saved from certain death by a strange concatenation of circumstances, they say that’s a miracle. But of course if someone is killed by a freak chain of events — the oil spilled just there, the safety fence broken just there — that must also be a miracle. Just because it’s not nice doesn’t mean it’s not miraculous.”
Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times
