Get on the bandwagon – NOT!

Dennis BosseThe other day a friend posted a picture on Facebook. Was of a pregnant woman standing, while next to her were three gentlemen sitting on a bench engrossed in their cell phones.

The comments were all highly negative at the three gentlemen.
“disgusting”
“punks”
“.. ridiculous…”

… and they continued.

My comment was pretty simple and straight forward:

Cannot judge anything by one picture… maybe they offered and she declined? Not enough information to make an INFORMED decision.. sorry.

Funny, after my comment the negative ones stopped. A few people even liked what I had to say.

Think about this: When people post stuff on social media, do you just scroll through and haphazardly “like” and “Lol” comments of friends just because they posted it? Are you really in agreement with what is being said? Do you just go with the flow?

I listen to Joel Osteen on Sirius XM. A phrase he says that resonates with me: “Be a thermostat not a thermometer”. Set the temperature just don’t record it.

I challenge everyone reading this to go out and be the change you want to see in the world.

– If it is negative, look or say something positive
– If it is wrong, set it right

Jump off the bandwagon, grab that sucker, and pull it in the right direction!

Peace and Love,
-Dennis

    This is so true these days, especially with the news reports. They give out just enough information to cause chaos when everyone fills in the blanks as they see fit. Please wait to judge until all the facts are clear…
