...because ppl are quick to criticize. I kept thinking of it when I would hear the election debates or see the different ad campaigns which were all about pointing fingers at others, saying what they did wrong rather than focus on themselves.

I also kind of think it relates to all those doing rescue as well because we often hear a lot of criticism of rescues and all but the reality is, at least u guys are doing something!

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
