60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: When and How Did We Arrive at Discord
by Diane Wyzga | February 9, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening around the world!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey with your host Diane Wyzga.
About a block from my library or a block from the post office sits a house on a corner. Propped against this house I saw a very large sheet of plywood. Spray-painted in large black letters were these words: Kill Lawyers – Not Cops.
Putting aside any 1st Amendment right of free speech arguments or the notion that many folks don’t like lawyers until they need one, I have a question: When and how did we arrive at this place? When and how did we depart from human kindness, civility, and manners?
I’ve often spoken to the man who lives in this house as I passed by on my walk, admired his sunflowers, commented on the weather. I plan to walk up to his door and say, “I am a lawyer. Are you going to kill me? Or do you wish someone would?” I want to hear how he arrived at his position. And then perhaps get him to put away his larger-than-life sign before some yahoo takes him up on the dare.
Practical Tip: Be of speech a little more careful than anything else today, tomorrow, and forever.
