We have a new president. People are marching on the streets. Groups are taking sides. Is it really a surprise? I'm more and more disheartened by what I read online. Whether it's Facebook, Twitter, or other social media sites, the threads I read just seem to get meaner. Heck, read product or book reviews and ask yourself...are the comments productive and respectful or just plain cruel? Why glum on to the negative comments instead of sticking up for civility? I plan to. We all have different pain thresholds and that includes emotional thresholds. I get hurt by mean comments and I'm sure I'm not the only one. There is a world of difference between constructive comments and the personal "you suck and aren't worth my time" kind of comments I read online. Why be so mean? Those cruel (and I've read comments so much worse) words are not going into cyberspace...they are going into someone's mind and soul. I wish people would think about that before their fingers touch the keyboard. Maybe stop for two minutes and think about it before you post words that are just plain mean.
