All a Matter of Perspective
This letter ran in a Phoenix newspaper recently:
A wake-up call from Luke's jetsWant to see the response? (Yes, you really do!) Well then, you're going to have to click here for the rest of the story...
"Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base: Whom do we thank for the morning air show?
Last Wednesday, at precisely 9:11 a.m., a tight formation of four F-16 jets made a low pass over Arrowhead Mall, continuing west over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet. Imagine our good fortune!
Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we need this wake-up call, or were they trying to impress the cashiers at Mervyns' early-bird special?
Any response would be appreciated."
I think this illustrates how easy it is to jump to conclusions, how important it is to try and actually get the facts before we open our mouths and spout our opinions. It's amazing what a little perspective will do for the situation...
