Critical Eye Disease

"She wears too much make up." "He certainly is showing his age." "I don't know why they bought that." "They need to control their children better." On and on it goes. The critical eye disease.

So what can I do about any of the above? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Yet over and over we run off at the mouth about other people. I announce that the critical eye disease is contagious and taking over the world. Casualties? Yes, the children.

Many of us were raised with the critical eye residing in our homes. Neighborhood gossip, small comments made at the dining room table, critical eye focused on the clothing decision of a child. What's wrong with us? Why do we think we have the right to judge other people? Why do we voice opinions when not asked? What are we doing to find a cure for this rampant disease?
