Brandie, you haven't updated your journal lately, so I'll add this here - I completely agree with your comment. The Golden Rule remains the gold standard of principles to live by. I've also been thinking that posting the Ten Commandments in public places isn't really all that bad an idea; I know that it's a supposed violation of the separation of Church and State, but if one really reads them, how can one be truly offended by them? Except for that silliness in the 2nd Commandment about graven images, which would seem to religiously outlaw any sculpture (or stuffed toy, for that matter) they are not bad guideposts for how one should live. If we could "all just get along" (thank you, Rodney King) the world would be a much more felicitous place.
