Look With Your Eyes, Not Your Hands

Updated: Jul 8, 2023

President Washington nailed it with this seemingly simple rule. It is number two on his list and pretty high on mine as well. In today's language, he misspelled usually, but his sentiment is quite clear. My mother would say, "Keep your hands to yourself!", but Granny said, "Precious, we mustn't touch!" Oh, but people touch...a lot.

Not only has the isolation that grew out of the pandemic and too much screen time produced individuals who cannot converse, but some have lost all sense of self awareness! There are no "common" courtesies and very few reasonable standards of conduct one can expect in public. Entire broods of children run through retail establishments unsupervised touching everything and making a mess. Adults are hardly better. I created a simple, but hopefully comprehensive list to help!
