Enough is Enough No More Cyber Bullying!

I'd like to take a moment to remind all of cyber space that when you post a comment on a YouTube video, blog post, Facebook page, Twitter account, or news articles that there is a real person on the other end, and that that real person has very real feelings.  

We see a lot about cyber bullying on the news with teenagers, but what you don't see is the fact adults are JUST AS GUILTY.  

It may seem like you're doing the world a favor by commenting on a video and telling a 14 year old girl that she needs voice lessons but I guarantee you she'll take it to heart and probably start crying.

You may be 100% convinced and convicted of your belief system but that does not give you the right to ruin someone's day by calling them a moron, ingrate, idiot, or any other name that strikes your fancy.

I'm not sure what kick some people get by insulting others anonymously.  Quite frankly it's cowardly.  I realize that this is a Christian blog, and that non-Christians will disagree with my convictions.  I am Okay with that!  But insulting me, my husband, children, marriage etc. etc. is just plain hurtful.  

I shouldn't need to grow thick skin just so someone else can behave badly.

I love what Connie from Smockity Frocks says on this today on her blog.  It's unfortunate that civil discussions seem so hard on the internet.
