Do People Think?

So I was browsing around tonight and came across this comment to one of my husband's soldiers and just gasped at the insensitivity of it. I'm sure it was meant in a "harmless" manner, but good grief, do people ever just think before they speak/write?

Here's the quote:

"I don't know how you do it, but I could never be away from my family that long without going crazy. I love them too much. "

My first reaction was "what , he doesn't love his family so it's not an issue for him to be apart"? The reality is....people do not think how things may sound. They get into their own little zone, and just say things that are idiotic, insensitive, heartless. I know it comes down to this girl probably has about as much life experience as the average non-military (kid) 8 yr old little one.

I can say I had to sit on my hands, but I responded in no way. Well I take that back, I prayed for her. I prayed she's able to continue live in her bubble because of men (and women) like her friend/Chad's soldier.

So thought for today...think long and hard before you speak and/or write.

Hello Miss Christy,

The tongue and brain working at the same time is hard thing for some people and some people just don't have what I call "Cooth" but, you did the right thing. Hang in there.

Some people don't realize they way their words sound when written. I'm sure this person didn't mean to make it sound insenstivie.
