Last week I watched an episode of Bring It on Lifetime. It is a show highlighting cheer/dance competition. The competition is fierce and every episode features a competition and a 1st and 2nd place team is crowned. The other week a team won the 2nd place trophy but the leader could not accept it. She told her girls they were winners and she would not accept the second place trophy. She hurled the trophy across the room and it shattered. I remember saying out loud “what are we teaching our children?” Ted Cruz won Monday night and seemingly that was accepted as fact that night, but today 2 days later he is accused of cheating by Mr. Second Place, Donald Trump. Sure Dr. Ben Carson has accused the Cruz campaign of playing a little fast and loose with the truth, and they have apologized for that, but Carson is not questioning the legitimacy of the process. There are winners and losers in any competition and people need to not only learn to be a good winner but also a good loser.
Have we become a nation of sore losers?
