I watched the "Decision Points" interview tonight and I must say that George W Bush's interview with Matt Lauer was admirable. It truly takes a lot of guts for anyone to have a job that is in the public eye because it is subject to a lot of criticism with little reward. Unfortunately we live in a society where people would rather criticize than respect.
Then we wonder why our kids act the way they do.... I digress. This society of the US would rather be disrespectful hypocrites. Why can't we ever just say "Wow, it took this ONE person a lot of guts to have one of the most difficult jobs you could have in this world. We should admire them for stepping up to take that huge risk and doing more than what most of us will ever achieve in our lives."
What has happened to respect and admiration in this world? Instead all we do is point fingers at one another and criticize. Honestly, I don't think its getting any better for future generations either.
Do other people see this or am I shooting in the dark?
