To Be Unoffendable...

These are strange times we are living in. Though...The more perspective I get...By having more years under my belt...The more I think that any given time can be properly be termed "strange" by someone living it. But one thing seems clear, the amount of media through which someone can be trashed publicly is at a level no one could have predicted even 20 years ago. That even non-public figures can be trashed online by a disgruntled ex or a pissed off neighbor truly makes all of us "eligible" to have insults hurled at us, lies spread about us. Sort of makes you feel unprepared, eh?

Through an interesting chain of social media events, I arrived at this video and my new favorite quote: "To be unoffendable is like an incredible position of power. To not care, to not even be interested in people's ill-informed opinions." Simon Doonan
