Defamation


Stuck in a world of people whom you do not know, and probably
will never know, can cause a lot of pain.

It shouldn't be, but human beings are very cruel, leaving out
many facts, they make up situations and state facts as they
see fit to whatever they want portrayed.

It is really ignorant and no one can understand why it's done,
except to increase their own self-worth.

If a person feels so bad about themselves, others just let it
go, considering the source, yet it does hurt and does a lot of
damage.

Defamation of character is a horrible crime, but only for the
person who is the recipient of it.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
