I've edited myself. This was a much longer post but then I realized that the point I was getting across was telling those whose writings I follow, either through their blogs, Facebook or Twitter, that I was telling them that I don't like it when they share their angry views so could they just focus on the positive. What? That's crazy.
While I do my best to tolerate those ideas that vary so differently from mine, and remind myself that it takes all kinds to make a world, it takes the strongest filter my mouth can find to not say - or write - what I believe to be true because I know it will push some away, and that's not my intention. My intention is go in the direction of calm discussion and peace. No confrontation, anger usually generates more anger. Deep breath. Peace.
I know we can't all believe the same things, I don't expect us to. I do expect us to show respect however. Show respect for those taking the time to read your words, and show respect to yourself and the legacy you'll leave behind.
