The Ill-Chosen Silence

The ill-chosen remark receives a lot of attention, but how about the ill-chosen silence?

The praise, encouragement, affirmation or defense that should have been spoken may wound as much as any verbal thrust. Silence can be deafening. It can also be hurtful.

Along these lines, I really wish your blog had a "Like" or "Thumbs up" button. There are many of your posts that I find particularly insightful or enjoyable, but I really don't have any particular "my $0.02" comment to share. :)

CincyCat,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check into that. Bear with me. I'm technology-challenged.

Michael
