Before you “Hit the send button”

One of my New Year wishes is to live with less regret. One small step for all of us is to practice self-restraint. Seldom are our first words our best…and thanks to social media, a whole nation is “shooting from the hip.” Thinking about what we say and how it affects others is an act of character and kindness. Profound thoughts need time to marinate, and great speeches, those that move nations, are written and rewritten for this reason. Just because we CAN do something or say something does not mean we SHOULD. One more carefully considered action and measured word will make a difference in the world.
