Visting Around the Internet
There is one thing I enjoy about blogs, you can get diverse views on subjects, learn something new, or just be entertained. Most of the blogs I read center on Virginia.
Yesterday, I went visiting, to a blog that always has interesting content. In fact, I can't keep away from reading it. It is written by DL Ennis from Sweet Brier. His latest post was on book banning, as a person involved in library science, DL Ennis has presented an important view point, in which I am much in agreement. There are other sites I read that I do not agree with, I read them anyway. I listen to their position, and rather than just discarding their ideas, I try to look through their eyes and see how they arrive at their conclusions. If they have a valid point, I appreciate the opportunity to understand it.
Then I ran across this site. A site of pure hate, from Roanoke Virginia. I did read it, and tried to find the logic of his position. And I also learned things. I learned the face of the enemy, ignorance. I learned the falseness of his reasoning, and that encouraged me to improve mine. I learned that some people have defects in compassion, caring, and promote ill will. What I learned most was what not to be, a valuable lesson in itself.
The site from Roanoke, tells me to know my enemy, and hopefully yours. I respect his right to say whatever he pleases. The more he says reinforces my will not to be like him.
