“I HEARD”…This week think about how many times people judged you, discarded you or disrespected you due to a rumor they didn’t have the actual facts about! How did you feel? Did you ever recover from it? Or did it not only hurt you, but your family and the ones you love as well?
Everyday you will be faced with facts and rumors. For example, this past week several facts have come out that will change our lives: 1. Congress passed an $800 billion dollar economic plan; 2. Bank CEOs faced Capital Hill to explain how they spent taxpayer dollars; 3. The Dow Jones Industrial dropped below 8000 points. Even though these facts will change how we live, the main topic in the news that people are forming opinions about is Chris brown and Rihanna!
The “fact” is that nobody besides those two individuals knows what happened that night and we need to consider that both of their reputations and careers that took years to build are on the line! Domestic violence is a tragedy no matter which person in the relationship throws the first blow. That’s why this serious situation shouldn’t be left up to speculation! Those with “TRUE POWER” know that the only absolute truth to a rumor is “I HEARD”. Please consider this before you judge without the facts, because we all know how it feels to be on the receiving end.
Have a great week.
