I sat in McDonald's today drinking a Dr. Pepper, doing homework for school, and watching two girls make out in the corner. While I'm unashamed of my moral convictions that run contrary to what I witnessed, I'm embarrassed by some of the condescending thoughts that ran through my head. I want to be someone whose first instinct is love and grace. My struggle reminded me of this quote I read in East of Eden last night:
"You are one of those rare people who can separate your observation from your preconception. You see what is, where most people see what they expect."
