Bullshit! Whoever wrote that sticks and stones crap had a heart of stone As a young and sensitive child I was beaten and bruised by words on a regular basis I think that's why I asked my Mom years later why she took me to Sunday School? She told me I loved the Bible stories Words of Peace and Love, and now fifty years on the pain is still real the words stuck in my head So Bullshit to those who claim words will never hurt you! In light of the tragic events in Dallas I think it should be obvious that words do carry a lot of weight. The Hate-mongers and those whose subscribe to the Politics of Hate are probably proud of themselves today. Their rhetoric created the atmosphere in which such a tragedy could happen. My heart and my prayers go out to all the families and loved ones of those who were injured and/or lost their lives and to all the first responders as well. May God give you the strength to go on! What you do is important!
