Internet Manners

It is true what they say, they internet has no chill whatsoever. I’m learning that people can be so cleaver but lately I’ve been feeling somewhat convicted for laughing at something that in real life is just flat out mean. If our virtual conversations reflect how we treat others in real life then humanity is filled with heartless bullies.

Would you really say what you share on line to someone’s face? Could we get away with the stuff we say in real life? Are celebrities excused because they are famous? Does the rule “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” apply to the world wide web?

I want to know your thoughts.  Watch my latest video blog and let me know what you think.

For the Sake of Humanity


Lately, it seems like there has been a rise of violent crimes happening throughout the world.  Extremist terrorist groups are making their names known by the slaughter of innocent people.  People are killing for what they believe in while others are dying for what they don’t believe in.  It’s disgusting.

While I’ve been crying for humanity and devastated at the very thought of the gruesome experience theseinnocent victims have endured—others on Facebook have been trying their hand at social media marketing and sharing disturbing images from the ground.  My timeline has been sprinkled with images of bloodied decapitated cadavers.  Some people have left comments expressing their concerns—I simply unfollow them.  What i want to know is what makes these people think assualting our senses with horrible photographs will make us more compassionate for the cause? What makes them post without thinking that sharing this image is in bad taste? what is wrong with you

I personally feel that if you are a showing images of people who have been brutally murdered or maimed without permission of their family—you are inconsiderate.  You are exploiting these people only to push your own personal agenda—its not okay.  It wasn’t okay to do it with Saddam Hussein or underprivledged children.


You are neglecting the concerns of your friends who don’t care the see the images.  Yes a picture is worth a thousand words.  But have more faith in your friends.  We don’t need to see an image to have compassion.  Most people are horrified by the thought of such barbarity.  Even in a time when the world seems to have gone to savages— there is still some humanity.

P.S. If you are going to blame an entire religion for one sect’s actions—you better take a deep look into your own religion to see what crimes you are responsible.  Christ said “He who is without sin, cast the first stone.”
