A man is riding on a train from a hard day at work.
Then another man comes in with 2 kids. The kids are running and making lots of noise.
The first man gets furious. After some time he can’t take it anymore, so he rises and yells at the father: “what kind of father are you, quiet your kids”
So the father says:
“We’re coming from the hospital where their mom passed away. I don’t know how to handle it, so I’m letting them run around”
At that moment the first man felt guilty and sorry for the father and kids.
How often do we let our anger take over us without getting all the facts?
