The Mean Web

I have written before about how benign comments on the web can be flamed by people who seem to not have much positive to say or at least want to make a dialogue. It’s an all or nothing proposition as it comes to ones opinion. People like to live and write their truth but is harshness really necessary?

Perhaps when you blog from your heart instead of other places attached to your body you open yourself up to people who come from negative places. I am concerned about how younger users take the responses from older folks who come in blazing hot in their responses. We are seeing that with the Parkland shooting survivors. The advantage of being on a network is you have the bravado and security of saying whatever the hell you want with very little consequences but you know tragic things happen and they don’t have to.

Remembering The Life Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. #MLK50

Fifty years ago Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. Today we remember his life and contributions to making our world a better place even in 2018. Thank you Rev. King for your life and what you did for us all.
