“Even a book can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and when that happens, you blame the hands, but you also read the book.”
― Erika Johansen,
I get sick and tired of humans going all judgy at first blush upon reading or hearing the news, instead of moving forward towards the truth. Nowadays through social media, the information presented is at times intended to distort and sensationalize. We, as humans do not take the time to research before drawing a conclusion, it is crazy!
In our personal lives, there is always someone who will come up to you and say, “did you hear about so and so? ” And based on the information the person receives, they will react and say, ” how awful!” Try and hold your opinion until the facts are checked out.
That is how things are in this day and age; it is our new normal! It is utterly pathetic! I, myself have been guilty of this and am working to improve on avoiding getting to judgy about the hearsay of every day.
Next time you read or someone tells you something that they heard. Refrain from commenting, do the research, fact check!
Food for thought.
