It's all about TRUTH.

Location is determined by position
Evidence will vary by location.
Facts will change according to evidence.
But TRUTH is unchanging.

When I blunder

When I blunder, I tend to blunder big.  It's generally due to thoughtlessness.  I suppose I should have seen the other side of the story, but I did not.

I took a meme that I saw on Twitter.  I didn't edit in any way, but posted it to Facebook.  And I apparently screwed up big time when I did that.  I blundered badly, blowing beyond belief.  I've been taken to task; I, unfortunately, cannot refute the logic used.  It doesn't change my opinion on the issue, but I was an insensitive boob, a total munch.  Sometimes, I need to stop and think how it really looks.  I did not do that this time; it makes me look like an intolerant, anti-Semitic jerk.  I fear I may have damaged the relationship and I may have destroyed more than I could repair.

A simple "I'm sorry," isn't really adequate.  And yet, I have nothing else to offer.  I don't even have the slightest idea how to begin.

I'm beating myself up over this... it's apparent bigotry, from which I thought I had at least some immunity.  It doesn't change facts, but it does make me take a long, hard look at myself.

D.F, I am asking you to forgive my stupidity.  Sometimes (And all too often) I tend to act before I think.
