"I will speak ill of no man, and speak all the good I know of everybody." (Benjamin Franklin)
Okay, let’s be honest: Ben Franklin did NOT follow his own advice. He was apt to criticize Jefferson, Adams, and even Washington (rarely).
And if we’re all honest, we have spoken ill of LOTS of people…this week. But the PRINCIPLE is still valid.
Let’s all, just for today, be conscious of how we speak about others. Do we speak of the bad, or of the good?
(Which do you think people are saying about you?)
