Those we speak of

I just saw something that tells of criticism of Tracy Morgan for not being in touch with the family of a close friend who died in an accident he was in. The criticism extended to Tracy also not mentioning the friend, or his family, at the Emmys.

I have no idea why things have been the way they are, but I can't help but wonder, if Tracy was as close to the person as it seems/sounds, how difficult it must be to process his death - on top of every other traumatic thing he has had to deal with.

We all think our opinions and pains and perspectives are warranted. But when we judge another without knowing the depth of their experience, I suspect there is a good chance we may be dealing more with our own selves than those we speak of.
