Be Kind

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 16, 2019

Hollywood is on high octane outrage again, but this time their venom is aimed directly at one of their own, Superstar Ellen DeGeneres. Why? Because DeGeneres was caught on camera enjoying the company of former President George W. Bush at an NFL football game.

“I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different and I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different … but just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them.”

Unlike her harshest critics, DeGeneres understands what it’s like to be treated badly because of who she is and what she believes.  In 2012, DeGeneres’ appearance in a JC Penney ad sparked a boycott effort by the Christian group, A Million Moms. DeGeneres might be justified in taking the usual Hollywood tact: fighting hate with hate, but she’s chosen instead to focus on the similarities she shares with her fellow human beings instead of the differences.

The View’s Joy Behar says she’s just not willing to take the risk of getting to know people like George Bush.  “I always said I didn’t want to get to know George W. Bush because I knew I would like him.”

Kudos to Ellen DeGeneres for her message.  ‘Be kind to one another,’ I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone.”

For those who can’t find the courage to be kind, just try not to be a schmuck.
