Truth about consequences


Everything you do affects others. Everything you do has consequences – some good, some bad.


Everything you do affects others. Everything you do has consequences – some good, some bad.

If you greet your neighbour with a warm, “Hi, nice to see you,” your neighbour will likely approach others in a pleasant manner for the rest of the day. If, instead, you give them an angry one-finger salute, they will likely not be very charming to you and others for some time.

If you light up in a bus shelter, you might cause others to leave the shelter, or trigger an asthma attack.

Someone threw a box of rotisserie chicken bones on the sidewalk along Crescent Road. Besides being unsightly litter, those bones posed a hazard to any animal that happened upon them. Any vet will tell you chicken bones shatter and splinter easily and can cause a lot of pain, expensive operations and even death. It’s like swallowing broken glass.

Please, folks, try to think of what might happen before you do anything that might hurt others, and let’s keep one of the most beautiful places on Earth beautiful.
