¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

Monday, 27 August 2012


When I was a child I was taught the saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me." At the time, I saw the sense of it. Words, being intangible, have no ability to inflict physical harm. Whenever another child said something mean to me, I would loudly recite the saying at them, using it like a magical incantation that would protect me from getting my feelings hurt. I usually said it with tears running down my cheeks.
As an adult I've come to see that the saying is, like many things taught to children, a lie. The truth is that bones heal, while the damage done by words can last a lifetime. I bring it up here only to remind those who go behind the backs of bloggers and report various violations WITHOUT making contact with the blogger they have issues with. Please be mindful of the ‘power’ you wield. And that is the power to wound with words {claims}. You may have the ‘power’ to shut blogs down, but DEEP down we all know that you will forever be poking, but never really penetrating.
But I should tread carefully here. I don't want to now become the very thing I decry. So I want to reiterate that if anyone sees an image here and would like to get their deserved recognition please do NOT hesitate in letting me know how you’d like to be given acknowledgment, THANK YOU J


  1. Very tactfully stated, my friend. And so true for all of us. You are absolutely correct.

    1. I was gonna leave this alone because I thought why hit the hornet's nest, but I couldn't resist.

  2. I concur with both comments.
