Doing the right thing is not heroic

The right thing is always the hardest thing to do.

Not always.

And even when it is, it's still the right thing. That should be your default setting. It shouldn't make people think you're going above and beyond. It should make people think, yeah, that's what I would do. That's what any of us would do.

I dunno, it just seems like we ascribe words like hero to people for displaying basic human decency. Maybe we should set the bar higher and expect more from one another.

Is it wrong to expect our default to be that we look out for each other? Shouldn't we always try to take care of those in need and not just during some big disaster?

It seems rather simple to me: you do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

If we all made that our standard modus operandi this country would be a decidedly better place.

Anyway, fuck you, Hurricane Irma. You ain't shit and I ain't scairt.

Titty sprinkles!
