What I Want.....
Yep, what I want is for our nation to survive. Yes, we’ve been through many trying times – but, this particular time is turning into a huge challenge. Indeed, what I want is for tolerance, understanding, compromise and general consideration for others to be brought back into our lives. What I want is for people to stop throwing virtual stones, chastising those they don’t even know. What I want is for folks to evaluate before they post. Check all the sources. For goodness sake, if you can post on the social media sites, you have the tools to double check. So many sites don’t have credibility, because they are only opinions – true, like mine. Yes, you could say this is a dream, but it is a dream I wish would come true. As a librarian, when asked a question, I needed to know the source before I answered that question – and, the sources which were available were those we had vetted. So many folks are blogging, posting only opinions without having done research. Research takes time and patience….I don’t think we have the patience for evaluation. This is sad. So, here’s a tip. Before you comment on something, check at least three sources – yeah, it takes time. But, golly gee, maybe we will have some understanding come out of all of this, maybe we will not be so eager to condemn. Maybe we can be a nation finally united..…I can dream. Thanks, that is all for now.
