Pause and reflect

Dear Editor: Here’s A Thought... Before you call, accuse, blog, re-tweet or post on facebook etc. you would be well advised to hit the Pause and Reflect button. Maybe you shouldn’t call your neighbor a derogatory name, accuse random people of being mentally challenged, post on facebook or forward unsubstantiated rumors, conspiracy theories or a televised and highly embarrassing rant. So you have strong feelings about an issue. Did you thoroughly research to ascertan the facts, participate in any discussions? Trick here is, did you do any of the previously outlined before you hit the Send button? Did you hurt people? Cause damage to your own cause? Civil participation is integral to a healthy democracy. Horrid as it is to contemplate; bad stuff does, indeed, roll down the hill. Let’s keep our standards of communication on a higher level and accomplish goals worth being applauded by all.
