From a young age, we’re taught some version of the Golden Rule, that we should treat others as we would wish to be treated. Have we as adults forgotten this simple yet powerful rule? How often do you stop and think about The Code before responding to someone with a rude or hurtful comment? Or before yelling and honking the horn at someone who just cut you off on your way to work? How would it make you feel if you were on the other end of those comments or that vitriol? How can we reintroduce The Code into our everyday lives? What do you think?

I love this and agree. We've forgotten how to treat other people as humans, with kindness and understanding. I think there's definitely something about taking a breath and stopping to think about what we're about to say or do. Even that 5-second pause can help us practice the Golden Rule!
