Yesterday’s post has me thinking about the ramifications of what we write – of the impact of words. This blog is about impact, just as the other ‘stuff’ that I write is also about impact. A positive impact.
I would like to encourage all of you to see and understand the impact of the words that you write. Each of us represents something. You certainly follow some kind of politicalÂ ideology. You haveÂ adoptedÂ a way of life. You have a philosophy. You have moral values worth admiring. You may even be (I hope) a person of faith.
I encourage each and every one of you to represent those characteristics in as positive a light as possible. Be a good representative of what you feel to be the ‘right way’.
We often let our enthusiasm get the better of us, and find that we have not been the best representative of our ideals. I routinely fail in this area, so I cannot throw stones. But, I do encourage those of you who comment here to remember that there are those who read this blog that do not believe in what you thinkÂ of asÂ ‘the right way’.
People of every religion and political ideology read these entries and benefit from your comments. Please make sure that the words that you choose and the tenor of your arguments reflect the best aspects of your way of life.
And while you do that, remember that I am grateful for your input.
