One of the challenges of blogging about an event a few days after that event is saying something new or different.
I am going to assume you’ve read or heard or both about the Lexington, Va. restaurant that refused service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
I am not going to wade into the specific event or arguments on either side of it.
Instead, I want to lift up one sentence from Ms. Sanders’ tweet. This sentence is
Her actions say far more about her than about me.
I agree with this. I believe this is a true statement not only for Ms. Wilkinson and Ms. Sanders, but for all of us.
My actions say more about me than about you, or anyone else.
Your actions say more about you than about anyone else.
Do you agree?
By the way, IF this is true for others, it is also true for you. It is not something you can just choose to use to explain away other people’s actions.
But if you do, then, well, that says more about you than about them.
