It’s important to note that when we take the high road, we don’t take it sanctimoniously, we take it humbly. We are not taking this stance to be better than, we are taking it for the greater good. It’s an unselfish act, it is not self-serving. We don’t do it as a way to display superiority. We rise above lashing back at our offenders as a way to stop the cycle of aggression, hate, and violence. We refrain from stooping down to a low road as to not fuel the anger within us.

See, it’s easy to take the low road, to spew out anger toward our enemy, to hurt the one that hurt us, to sarcastically put down someone we disagree with, and to make the excuse that they deserved it for harming us and others. That’s easy. But to refrain and maintain our wits, dignity, and self-respect, that’s hard. And it takes skill, self-control, and a higher purpose.

Look, we all want a better world, a more peaceful world, and a safer world. But we can’t rely solely on others, the politicians, the government, and the church, we must all do our part. We must take responsibility for our actions and hold ourselves accountable. As they say, we’re all in this together.
