Words can Hurt

Words can Hurt

Several years ago we stood with a crowd of interested citizens as one of our local colleges was forced to reduce a dorm building to rubble. As the building imploded, no one knew how to react. Should we applaud? Should we cry? I couldn’t help but think of the lives that building touched. Thousands of laughs, thousands of words, thousands of high fives must have come from the thousands of young men who lived in this building. What took years to build was literally destroyed in seconds. It was a powerful reminder of how quickly other things, like reputations and relationships can be so easily destroyed. Proverbs reminds us that a spiteful tongue crushes the spirit. Be careful. Use your words wisely. And remember one of the rules we learned in kindergarten, if someone works hard to build something, don’t knock it down. Have a great week. Hugs, 2-mama
