We’re too busy playing ‘gotcha’

Have we become so bored, that we are willing to jump every time someone says something in the heat of the moment that may not be considered “PC”? If that is the case, we are becoming a society of cats on a hot tin roof. Ready to pounce at the first sign of an improper comment.

Is there one of us who can throw the first stone, or say they have never said something in the heat of the moment? That is most certainly not me! Unfortunately, it is the nature of humans to sometimes speak out of anger, and at times the words we use are inappropriate and offensive. I do, however, believe that most of the words said in anger are truly not words from the heart.

That being said, is it not time to stop making a mountain of words out of a few spoken from the mole hill.
