Words matter

Whether posted anonymously or spoken in person, words matter. They can change how a person feels inside. A case in point is words from one of my readers, sockeymom. Though she says she “mostly” disagrees with me, she posted words of concern and encouragement after my last post, “How to obtain miracles.”

I feel remembered and valued. Thank you, sockeymom. You are a good example of how to treat others online. I am confident you are thoughtful and kind in person as well. At the same time, feel free to disagree with me and to argue points where we differ.

I always strive to be respectful to my readers. I appreciate strong and lively debates with firm and differing viewpoints. Everyone can learn something with an open mind. Nevertheless, no debate is worth our becoming ugly or harsh. Nothing is worth lowering ourselves to the level of throwing verbal garbage or worse at one another.
