    Bonnie, I agree sooo much with this post. Online people say so many things that I like to think they wouldn't say face to face. Some would, I realize, but many wouldn't.

    And for sure, we should all take a moment to actually think about the consequences of our actions. Who might it hurt.... etc....

    Heaven knows I've "done" somethings that are far from above reproach. And I've taken plenty of reproach. I'm sure as anything, not saying I'm perfect or anything like that. The difference between myself and some, is that I did mean what I did/said/or whatever. And I stood by it. And took what came.

    I'll also say that I've NEVER written anything on these blogs, or anywhere else, for that matter, that I didn't mean whle heartedly .... and said in a way to get a point across, without being rude. EVER. I stand by that.

    I wish more would bite their tongue just a bit, and wait. Then post. Edit and re edit.

    I love your words! Keep 'em coming!

    P.S. I'm very far behind reading...... please don't think I'm ignoring.

    I can't wait. I hope others are reading. I hope others are "thinking" of what they say, and how a good point is lost in the name calling and nastiness. Some I agree with, but I am so disgusted by the presentation, that I wish I didn't agree with. If all I see is ill thought out words of a mean hearted prattle, I just stop reading.

    Brenda Fincher has it on the blogs, that "If your Grandmother would be embarrassed to read it, don't say it" or something to that affect. That is so true. I use the thought that my Mom and Dad read these blogs, so I have to watch my tongue. Though honestly, I'm kind of just that way, being raised that way. I care more than anything what my family thinks of me.... and would never want to embarrass them

    keep 'em ocming!
