Before I begin let me express a prayer to the families in the Oklahoma region of our Country.
A sincere thank you to all the volunteers who have come forward to assist during this time.
I had a slight dilemma today with an issue and I still do not understand the meaning or purpose. Perhaps someone from my reader nation can explain.
Without going into deep details, an incident occurred where a point was being made about a subject. The subject went astray, as does happen at times.
Then a certain point had to be made by a person. This point was cruel, mean, unthoughtful, totally not necessary.
It was made with contempt, almost as if to be mindfully hurtful when made. There was no thought as to how much it had hurt the guest of the home even when it was pointed out. The point was still the driving force that would not be dropped.
At that point in time, even my interventions were of no use and the cold callous comments continued. The feeling of self centeredness and superiority in one’s own opinion was what seemed to be on the plate of the speaker who was not going to stop. The guest politely left. The speaker did not stop.
When is it necessary to “drive a point home” so much that it is mean and hurtful to another. Isn’t life too short? I am just not understanding the need for this. I really need someone to explain to me why it is ok to hurt others over petty crap that will not pay my bills next month. It will not bring back the lives lost today in Oklahoma.
Was it worth making two women cry to make yourself feel like a real man? Was that the real purpose? I am really not understanding.
Does it really matter if someone is or is not an “Army Brat”? Will they pay their bills on time if they are or are not? Does it really matter in the end? Was it worth it?
Just needed to write,
