May the Buck Stop Here

In case you’re not familiar with the idiomatic expression the title of the post means more of less “may this situation end here.”  I this case in particular, I’m talking about anger, ill will and aversion one picks up from others. Whether it is a loved one lashing out from the depths of their own grief, a colleague looking to place blame for a problem at work or a stranger who gives  a dirty look or says something unkind, may I not pass on the suffering. May I remember the advice of the Lord Buddha in the Simile of the Saw and may I look upon all beings with sympathy and compassion. May the buck stop here.
