Some days I cannot possibly face one more second of ignorance.
So I face something else.
I know I carry my own level of ignorance,
But it never leads me to callousness or hate.
Good one! Happy ❤ day.
Thank you Paulette 🙂
We know this too!
I think there are a few who are not self aware Peter 😳

More than a few unfortunately Colleen.
Sadly. Heartachingly sad.
I just love the way you get to the point with so few words.. I write loooong pieces to prove mine :S
Oh I have some that are WAAAAAAY too long Anya 😉
May their moments of enlightenment come sooner than later with no further victims of their ignorance including themselves.
Amen Russ, Amen.
I know exactly what you mean. My dad always said, ‘there is no arguing with ignorance,’ and so I never bother, but having heard you can’t unhear.
Your father was brilliant. And yes, it’s too bad we can’t put filters on our ears.
Thank you Lynn 😉
I think full-time vigilance is called for, if only to be certain we don’t tacitly send “approval” in our silence against ignorant and hurtful/hateful words and attitudes. 😦
I agree. But sometimes not giving audience to such things, is the best thing we can do. 🙂
so what is better vigilance or not giving audience…both is on its way stressful I think!?
I think vigilance and not giving audience both have their places. I have worked in a field where often it was discovered if you remove the audience, the “behavior” stops.
you are right this works normally with naughty children…
My Mom, as a high school teacher, said that things which hold hatred or prejudice in their content need to be rebuked. She told students who watched vandalism or heard hateful comments (like “that girl is a wh- – -” or “the guy is a ni- – – -” are just as bad as the one who said or did those things.)

Great comment, Debra! 🤔
oh that’s right! I feel the same way. Often, however, people say things that they really do not mean, or can not mean, because they do not know people. It is easy and of course much more interesting for others to speak in extreme terms. So people are divided into supermen and idiotes. Often a small (admittedly unpopular) throw-in is enough ….. “who is not?” and the stupidity of the person being talked about has relativized …; ) … but of course the tendency to hate and prejudice is always there, if you want to distract from yourself …..
I like this title and the words are perfect.
Hope you have some peaceful people who give caring hugs out. . . 💗 Love ya, Colleen.
Thank you Robin. The love is returned. ❤
This love and comment was much appreciated, Colleen! ❤️
