In a bizarre case of worrying about things that shouldn’t really matter, and Egyptian member of Parliament is angry at Soccer great Lionel Messi for donating his boots to one of the country’s charities. Here’s a man, an athlete at the highest level of his sport, someone who doesn’t need anyone to care or like him at this point, trying to be nice and instead he hears the following attack from the Egyptian politician: “We have never been so humiliated during our seven thousand years of civilization.” Really? Want to think about that one more time? Since I tend to have a more positive than negative opinion of Egyptians I won’t come up with humiliations greater than a celebrity trying to be nice. All I will say is this. Please try to learn how to be a little more gracious when someone is charitable to your people. Every nation in the world has people who welcome gifts and need things they would otherwise not get. If anything I think Messi deserves a thank you followed by an apology.
