I walked out of my office today at noon and slid into the stream of pedestrians - the hipsters stroking their beards, the pale professionals blinking in the sun, mothers pushing strollers through the crowd with more skill than a racecar driver
before I knew it, I walked past my lunch destination I kept walking - and watching the people of my town share a sidewalk without attacking one another
for a moment I was tempted to take a picture post it on online, make a socio-political statement; if people from all walks of life can share the sidewalk can we not find common ground?
I left my phone in my pocket - decided against adding my unnecessary opinion to the manufactured outrage that is the sad truth of social media
I smiled at a pretty lady pushing her baby she smiled back and we shared a brief human moment I kept walking
