It's those little things, the smallest choices, the seemingly minor decisions that can have the greatest imapct. That tiny bit of gossip, that off-handed comment that's slander, a lie to save our reputation, a choice to do something we later regret that can destroy our lives, causing great pain to others, and unravel community.
When will we learn our actions impact everyone around us, including innocent people? So, stop and think before you act. Then just stop. Spare yourself and others.
