In the last few years I’ve become acutely aware of the fact we’re becoming a nation of mealy-mouths, in our homes, in our schools, and in our government. We have come to endorse a culture of oral indefinites. We toss around words like “unacceptable” and “inappropriate”, and phrases such as “mistakes were made” so we can feel good about being tolerant. We accept the morally unacceptable as “not illegal.” We scold bullies in school for their “unacceptable” and “inappropriate” actions while forcing the victim to endure these actions which have no or little consequence for the perpetrator.
Come on, everyone! Stop playing both sides of an issue. Step up when it’s time and speak out clearly, say it’s WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!
What do you think?
