A group of us went to a concert last week. We had front row seats that we paid a lot for, because we
really love the artist. We were in a special section that even required an armband to get in, and the
security folks were very adamant about checking.
After the warm-up band played, there was a short break in which dozens of people crowded to the front
of the stage in anticipation of the main attraction. They were standing four deep, and there was nothing
to see from our position except their backsides. We tried yelling down in front to no avail. Someone
even called security over. Security was ignored. We could not see the stage for the entire concert. I find
myself very disillusioned with people after that ridiculous and self-absorbed display.
How do I get my faith in people back?
Well, you caught me on a bad week for good will, what with Election Day looming and all. But maybe
next week will be better?
