Any excuse will serve a tyrant.
How often in our own lives do we seek to dominate those around us? Our spouse? Our children? Our co-workers?
All too often the excuses we offer for our poor behavior are little more than flimsy veils to pad our own conscience while we endulge ourselves in domineering activities that have no place in a civilized society.
I look in the mirror and see in myself the opportunity to become a better person.
