On Black Friday people waited in line for a chance at getting great deals.On every newscast, the reporters captured on film crowds funneling into malls and stores all over the country. Most of the people that went to the Black Friday events could barely move, let alone find the bargains they were looking for. In some cases fighting broke out over limited numbers of sale priced items.

In this season of giving, we need to remember that the best gift we can give is that of civility. Common courtesy is often required but rarely given. Is there really an item in a store that justifies physical aggression towards one another? It is after all just a THING!

Give the gift that will be remembered the most: Kindness!
