Beyond Kindness

Isn't God like a tazer sometimes? Or, if you don't believe in God, think of the people who love you, the ones who would risk their reputation, their career--or much more--to protect you from your worst enemy.

Yourself.

Drunk, half-crazed with grief, this man had a knife to his throat. And this officer* tazered him, talked him down, saved his life.

Thank God for Himself, and for people who know it's their duty to hurt you a little to help you a lot.

*brother of a friend. She sent it to me

This is pretty astute and original. Thanks for the thought. I thought it inside my head (reference to the above post.)
