Rights or Wrongs?
It seems all anyone talks about these days is their rights. It’s all I see and hear; ‘but we have the right!’ Well you know what you don’t have? Common sense and decency.
Sure, I have the right to tell you what I really think of you. I have the right to walk up to your child and tell him/her that Santa isn’t real because he/she is ugly. I have the right to stand outside the funeral of your loved one holding a sign that reads ‘God is glad they’re dead and so am I.’ I have the right to hate you and spread that hatred around so others can hate you too.
But I don’t do any of those things. Why? Because it isn’t right.
What people fail to realize is that having the right to do something doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. You have to have the common sense and the decency to keep your thoughts and opinions to yourself if what you think is going to hurt someone else. There is a time and a place for expressing yourself – it’s up to you to find them.
