So, my hair is looking more like a short haircut and not newly grown-in peach fuzz. I've noticed that as I regain my "new normal" appearance, strangers that may have at one time given the kerchief wearing girl a look of empathy, now barely remember their manners. There was a "kerchief effect". Why is it that someone's outward appearance must influence how kind we are to one another? Yes, my situation was quite apparent to the outside world, but others may be experiencing situations that are not as evident...they are incognito. They may be walking through their life with their own crosses to bear and their own muck to trudge through. They could be experiencing the loss of a loved one, a health condition, depression, or maybe just a headache or a bad day at work. This information should not be a necessary component for treating people in a kind manner. So, can we all just try to be a little more kind...to EVERYONE...not just the "kerchief wearing girls of the world?"
