Not as Black and White as it looks

 
“I am tired of people saying that poor character is the only reason people do wrong things. Actually, circumstances cause people to act a certain way. It's from those circumstances that a person's attitude is affected followed by weakening of character. Not the reverse. If we had no faults of our own, we should not take so much pleasure in noticing those in others and judging their lives as either black or white, good or bad. We all live our lives in shades of gray.”
Shannon L. Alder

Well, then, it can be construed that a person of good character could err and one of bad character could do good, such that when the world seeks to crucify the former, loved ones would be the only ones to give support with the understanding that it was just one deviation. And we seat back and watch from our sofas wondering how or why they'd be there for him/her. Maybe the support they give could help character strengthening; maybe it could help keep them from falling far out of character.

Not very many things are as distinctively black and white as the print on this lace shirt. There are grey areas in other peoples  lives that we know nothing about.....no matter how intimate we are with them.
