To The Editor:

“The moving finger writes and having writ moves on, nor all your piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all your tears wash out a word of it.” These words should be understood by all of us. When we say, post or write anything which is published, it is out there forever.

Unlike a baby crying in church or a loud burp in a crowded room, the words are there for all to read or hear or repeat and never go away.

You post on You Tube, on Facebook and Twitter and never realize what harm you may be doing to yourself or others with your pictures or words. These apps are super when used correctly but must be used in a sensible manner so that no harm is done to anyone.

Use caution and always weigh your words before you post them into the public domain.
