Know Better, Do Better



Edited:
Based on several comments, I realized that this post was too euphemistic and that I let myself off the hook too easily, so I've deleted it.

Cutting past the fluff:
I hurt a woman who needed help.
I "didn't mean to"--but that doesn't excuse it.
I should have known better.
I am sorry for the pain I caused and my ignorance.

What I learned from all of this is that the next time I encounter someone in pain, I'm going to lead with more kindness, and listen more closely, than feels necessary. 

When we know better, we do better.  

Onward as ever, my friends.
