Quote Of The Day

With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds… Abraham Lincoln (16th President of The United States of America)

Tired Of Arguing Online

In the tit-for-tat world that is social media these days arguing can be exhausting. There is an old Internet saying “don’t read the comments” and its true. On Facebook you can see where there is so much pain and suffering in the feedback of people who are wanting to speak louder to get their point of view across. Back in the good old days there were debate classes that taught the fine craft of point and counterpoint. In debate you had to do your research to make your case. There was a point to debate and it was an orderly, civilized discussion of a subject.

Fighting the good fight is a noble thing but when you think about it that can just wear you out. Politics has made things so bad that it has ended friendships and caused division. I get tired of the arguing but you have to do something or say something when you see injustice going on. But man things can get tiresome online.
