Why are people always after Amontillado these days!

Why are people always after Amontillado these days?  They are so passive aggressive.  For no apparent reason, they want to lure you off for some Amontillado and then wall you up like in the Edgar Allen Poe story.  People are so false to your face, assuring you everything is fine.  Then, for some unknown offense you have apparently given them, they want to try to get you fired, sue you, or take you off to try a glass from a cask of Amontillado and wall you up to die!

Is it because our society today has become such a stranger to common sense, which can’t be taught?  Is it because our society has become a stranger to reason, logic and common courtesy?  Just ten minutes driving on the road can illustrate to anyone how inconsiderate everyone has become.  We need to open our eyes and stop lashing out at everyone with vengeance in response to the least of offenses.  We need to forgive, forget and move on.  Our insane sense of entitlement should result in not doing harm to our fellow man but in realizing we only live once and to treat each other with love and respect before our brief candles are blown out.

Ever try to do something charitable and get lots of push back?

I recently set up a private fund raiser to help a friend going through a health crisis.  I did it out of the purest intentions, but unfortunately, most people thought I did it for the wrong reason.  Most people assumed I had the wrong intentions.  Many people were jealous that I thought of it before them.  And several others questioned my integrity, methods and honesty!

Why is our society so jaded that you are automatically accused of being guilty until proved innocent?  I guess with so many scams these days, even by so-called “charity organizations,” have made most people distrustful.  We live in a sad world where whenever someone tries to do something good or raise money, they are immediately judged as being shifty or scamming!  We need to get back to days gone by when we assumed everyone’s attentions were pure from the beginning.  Or maybe we can never get back to those days.  I will press on, through all the push back, and continue to do good and help out my fellow man in crisis, continuing to raise funds to those less fortunate than myself and for those in need.
