Walk a mile.

I often think of the phrase, "walk a mile in a mans mocasins" before you judge him.
This normally refers to something we think could be bad or wrong.
I often think of it in another sense. I think of the price of gas and fuel oil and I think of the many seniors and low income people who really do not know whether or not they will be able to afford to heat their homes this winter. If I walked a mile in the mocasins of the CEO of an oil company, what would that mile be like. Would I feel bad, or would I feel arrogant, and say, because I can do this to people I am better than they are. Would I laugh or cry. Or would I genuinely just not care about those people
I heard once that some people had a chance to talk to the CEO of an oil company and they said they would like to band together and try to have an effect on the price of oil. He laughed and said you can't do it, and walked out of the room. That oil company made billions the next quarter.
How should I think about that, I guess I need to do what we do about a lot of other things, Pray about it.
