I read a powerful post today by Everly’s Bethany Joy Galeotti. She shared reflections on the plight of our youth and what she has dubbed ‘the great American gossip epidemic’. I so appreciate the way she is taking a stand on behalf of what is right and shining a light on the victims of our society’s obsession with scandal and gossip. Here’s a small preview…”Is it any wonder that teenagers today are so desensitized? We are leading by example and telling them that humiliation is common …acceptable even, as a form of personal entertainment! “It’s just a little gossip,” we say, “it’s not hurting anyone.” Well, you know what? I’m sick of it. It IS hurting people.”
Please take the time to read this post and send it on to others. It IS time to take a stand.
