from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Personal responsibility means being accountable for your actions. It’s not about deflecting, or blaming others.
But it seems that far too many do just that these days.
When we were young children, it was easy to deflect blame to a sibling. “He or she told me to do it, or made me do it” – whatever “it” happened to be at the time.
Parents, however, if they were any good, wouldn’t let us get away with it. They would come back with, “Well, if he or she told you to jump off a bridge, you would do it?”
