Words





I had never actually seen a trend on Facebook in action—until Monday. Suddenly everyone was posting memories of Robin Williams, thanking him for his time, remembering his best moments and mourning his last.

My feed has been flooded with articles on suicide prevention, recognizing depression, assuring people that anxiety is not the end of the world, not a brand of shame that must be worn forever. There are stories and stories of what has happened and what no one wants to happen again.

And it made me think about writing.

Also, this song.

That sticks and stones thing? Maybe we should tell that story more often. Too often we don’t think and then we speak, and that matters. Too often we only realize it too late.

Food for thought.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

~Ephesians 4:29

I have just one rule down here: Don't Be a Problem. This spans the entire umbrella of rudeness and crudeness, so I reiterate: Don't Be a Problem. Thanks for stopping by!
