Before We Speak | A Toddler Loses His Life.

Two Years
I watched this play out on the local news two hours after the alligator pulled a little boy into the water. Unfortunately, I went on Social Media the next day as news broke that the toddler’s body had been found.

Internet memes. Rude comments. Somehow the tragedy from the Orlando nightclub was mixed in. Too many responses were oblivious to the fact that a child had been drowned & the parents practically watched their child die. Too often, our knee-jerk reaction is insensitive to other people’s feelings.

I encourage all of us to step back for a while to digest a situation before we speak.
